Rare Gem Collection


Our family has been mining for over 200 years in this area of Spruce Pine and the high country region. The family even started the North Carolina Mineral Museum located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our family has scoured these mountains for centuries and have found some of the rarest, largest, and most beautiful gems that are in museums all over the world, and we have our own private collection that we hold onto that is showcased in our shop in Spruce Pine, NC.
