Stopped on Oct 23rd with 2 families with 8 total kids. The staff was attentive and did a great job with the kids. We learned a lot about gems and had a fun time finding them. Prices seemed fair for what we got. Next time we're in the Dells we'll be back.

This was #1 on my Dells to-do list and it did not disappoint (I love rocks, fossils, and the like)!

We went to the one on Broadway. All of the employees were super helpful and friendly and not at all pushy! The buckets range from $15-$130ish dollars.

I got both of my kids a $30 bucket each and I got a $60 one. My husband complained about my bucket choices for about 2 seconds and then proceeded to “help” me go through mine! Haha! He was skeptical about it but quickly realized it was fun.

Our buckets guaranteed 1 polished gem. My kids got a 1.5 carat garnet and 1.5 carat blue topaz. I got a 3 carat topaz!

When we were done, the employee behind the water trough helped us pick out our “good ones”. We still got to keep everything we found, she just bagged them differently. Then you took your good ones to another employee who tells you exactly what you found. What looked like a bunch of rocks turned out to be amethyst, garnets, aquamarines, quartz, citrine, emeralds, rubies, and sapphires! My mom found a 900 carat sapphire!!! Of course they talk about their services
And prices, but it’s always presented in a respectful and knowledgeable way and not at all pushy!!!

I can’t wait to go back!!!!

I was in the dells having a family day when my husband took me and our daughter to the mining company. We all had a blast! Super reasonable, super friendly, and extremely helpful. We got a 15 dollar bucket and a 30 dollar bucket, we’re going back for more this week! Loved the atmosphere and the thrill of the hunt!

My family's first time doing this, and my daughter's (5 & 7) had such a blast! There wasn't any pressure to buy anything to be cut or mounted. I had them give the presentation to my daughters and they listened intently. They love their bag of gems and we'll be doing this again next time we're here. We got the $15 buckets and found some large gems too. We'll probably get the $30 buckets next time. Such a fun place.

My kid wanted to mine for gems. There is quite the range in bucket prices (reasonable to quite pricy). My kids split a bucket. When they were not looking the employee dropped a few more gemstones into their bucket, which I REALLY appreciated. The store itself has many neat minerals and gemstones to look at.

Yes, gem "mining" is expensive. My kids have done it many times in many different places. I always cringe at the prices I'm charged. Here, the cheapest bucket is $15 but we went for the next one up, for $30 b/c those contain a polished 1-1/2ct gem.

Ours had a garnet. This gem was found in a plastic bag hidden in the bucket so that you don't miss it. Our bucket had quite a nice variety, including tiger's eye, topaz, quartz, garnet, bloodstone, iolite, emerald and ametrine. The young girl who assisted us did not hover or "bother" us while the girls were sifting thru the bucket.

Afterwards, she gave us a bag for the gems and invited us to sit down at the counter so she could tell us what was found. She did a great job of explaining all our finds and unlike any other place we'd been, she showed us what the stones would look like if we ever wanted to have them cut, polished & mounted. At no time did we feel pressured to do so. She just provided the information, the costs and showed us an example of what the finished product would look like.

For those that feel mining is not worth the price, the shop does have a ton of beautiful rocks/gems. Some polished stones are only $1, or $8.99 for a small bagful.

We went to the down town location. We got the blue and red bucket. Since this was my wife’s first time she did the blue bucket and I did the red. I knew what to expect. She had a good time sifting for her gems.

I brought my grandkids there. They did enjoy mining for gems. However, the staff seemed unhappy to be there. The guy that was working with the mining part, didn't really smile and interact with us. The gal that was talking about the gems, was monotone and I don't think she smiled once. She was more interested in trying to get us to get one of the stones cut and mounted.

For younger kids, it's kinda fun to buy a bucket and sift for "gems".
But the price of the buckets escalates quickly...
My nieces and nephews had fun, each with $60 buckets.
My mom bought a $130 bucket and managed to pull one of the largest chunks of the day. A fist-sized unpolished amethyst.

Nice to do once. But way too expensive to do on a regular basis.

We purchased the smallest package and used a $1 off coupon from a Dells coupon book. It was enough for our son to enjoy and keep busy for a bit. His gems came in a little pouch. We purchased a colorful picture guide to the gems and rocks, for a small price. Nice little gift shop. Fun experience for kids and families. "Digging for gems." We went to the down town location. The other location is open seasonally.
