The Morefield Gem Mine is an exciting place for the whole family. For more than 80 years the mine has produced many varieties of mineral specimens and is open to the public. You may view the exhibits, visit the gift shop, or mine you own gem stones. The Morefield offers something for both the amateur or advanced rock hunter alike.
Customers love finding amazonite, topaz and garnets especially. The children's favorite would be the purple amethyst. The microcrystals are popular with the collectors of micromounts, also.
The Morefield is world-famous for the Amazonite, and more can be found on the ground here, than anywhere in the U.S.A.
