Customer questions & answers:
Yes, the picture represents actual stones hand picked in our mining bucket. Every mining bucket will be different as there are not two stones alike. Type of gemstones, sizes, and quantities will vary in every mining bucket.
Yes, all of our gemstones/crystals are real.
Our mining buckets can be re-used over and over again. Place your stones in the reusable bucket, add dirt, shake, and relive the fun over and over again.
If you do not purchase one of our sifters a common kitchen sifter/colander can be used to separate the gemstones/crystals from the mining rough. We suggest using a plastic container filled with water to go through the material. A dry cloth can be used to dry the gemstones.
Yes, this can be used as a school activity. Many of our local schools have purchased our mining buckets to teach students about rocks and minerals. We have had positive reviews from both teachers and students.
In our experience kids over the age of 4 tend to do well mining for crystals. Not all children are the same and we recommend that all children be supervised by an adult during the activity. There are small stones in the kit which can be a choking hazard.
All kits are different. Stones, sizes, color, and quantity will vary. No two kits are the same. We always carry a minimum of 20 different types of crystals/gemstones in stock. Due to supply and transportation from mines, we are always changing the types of stones you will find in our mining buckets.
While all stones are from different parts of the United States and the world, we assemble these kits in Miami, Florida USA. All gemstones/crystals are hand-picked to ensure that we send the best quality stones in our mining buckets.
Depending on the size of the bucket you can expect your child to be busy for about 30 minutes to an hour or more. Every child is different. We recommend scooping up a handful at a time and mine little by little. Do not dump the entire bucket in the water. Enjoy the process!
We consider the 3 pound bucket as a personal bucket. The 8 and 10 pound bucket can be shared but good luck splitting the gemstones/crystals between two…lol

Bought this for my niece’s 4th birthday. She loves rocks and this was a huge hit! Her and her 7yo sister spent a good 45 minutes digging in the sand. We got all the gems out and then they came back later to play with the sand some more.
Guys packed it full and everything in it was amazing! I did steal all of her pyrite though for a Smaug horde.
Absolutely loved it! The grandkids had so much fun. The variety of stones was amazing!!! Would definitely order again!
Extremely happy with the service when called and when I put in the notes I love labradorite, they included a couple gorgeous pieces. Will buy again : )
I BOUGHT TWO SMALL AND TWO LARGE AND PAID FOR THE EXTRA GEMS. MY DAUGHTER SENT ME A PICTURE TO SHOW ME HOW MUCH MORE THE LITTLE ONES HAD THEN THE LARGE BUCKETS. AND MY TWO 8 YEAR OLDS WERE VERY UPSET THAT THE 3 YEAR OLDS GOT MORE.
Filled with so many goodies ranging from large to small. I spent hours sifting through my bucket and I’m still not done looking for all the small pieces!
Amazing! I discovered more rocks that I didn’t have or have never heard about. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
The gem on the stick broke before we even got to open the kit or display it. Emailed and asked and received no reply to remedy it.
