Elijah Mountain Gem Mine is North Carolina's premiere mining destination. Become a prospector and mine for gems and gold like the settlers of the Blue Ridge Mountains have done for generations! Find rubies, emeralds, garnets, sapphires, amethyst, citrine, quartz, moonstone, fossils, geodes and more! Once you've mined your treasures, we'll help you identify your stones and we have stone cutting available if you want to transform a gemstone into jewelry.


We have the largest gemstone and fossil store in North Carolina. Great prices from a dollar to much more. 


Take a break and picnic by the stream.  


Last but not least, you'll have to take time to visit our goat petting area.


A wonderful opportunity to make some lasting memories with your family.
