    would a tourmaline dig be similar? i'd like to go to dig sometime....the reason I'm asking is because i want to have a proper tool … looks like you did? also, how did you clean/polish up those herkermers for the final shot?

      It's neither Diamond nor Amethyst, it's Quartz called Herkimer Diamonds.

      Thanks Thirst Fast! You won't regret going, amazing mining. For sure if you see the black Anthraxolite be sure to chase it and keep smashing rock, it leads to the good stuff! We got that tip from a guy who mines there almost every weekend for years... he has a basement full!

      Yes, most mines are open to the public for a daily mining fee. I think it's around $12 US per person, well worth it!

      Strange, no signs posted up there that we saw on the main path. There was also 20-30 people mining up there along side of us, as well as further up the hill. No mention from anyone in the shop paying mining fees either. If they have closed this area, there is no mention of it. When we do go again I'll find out more info. Thanks for the heads up.

      +Rough Market Theres a bunch of no trespassing signs up / property markers past the stone wall since the beginning of this year, talked to multiple people who've said the land is actually the mine next doors , someone actually went next door and asked if they could dig back there and they said no.

    • Rough Market
      Rough Market  3 months ago

      Not sure when you heard that, but last week was open with no issues. They also did the end of day check up and no problem.

    • turboneon414
      turboneon414 3 months ago

      Id just be careful up there, digging/mining has been shut down in the woods behind ace, not sure how often they do check ups

      Exactly, was at least a full day of smashing rocks to open this up, but still no where near what the claims owners go through to get crystal. Thanks for watching!
