An introduction to Rock Candy's colorful minerals and mining history. You will collect gemmy green fluorite, banded purple fluorite, sparkling quartz and (if you’re lucky!) barite crystals. Access to druzy quartz and fluorite zones.
Trips are held every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday in July and August; and every Saturday & Sunday in June and September. We provide hammers and safety goggles only. No other tools are allowed.
Our newest tour, where you'll collect pretty fluorite and barite samples in the cool of the evening, then find fluorescent treasures after dark. Trip includes making edible geologic goodies while we wait for darkness.
Saturday evenings in July and August. Collect all you can carry in one load. We provide hammers and safety goggles. Closed-toe footwear is required. Bring at least one flashlight per family, as you'll be hiking in the dark.
