Our staff's enthusiasm for gemstones is truly contagious.

Sugar Creek Gem Mine makes prospecting for North Carolina gemstones fun and enjoyable for guests of all ages and experience levels. The gem mining process starts by selecting a bucket of NC Gemstone rough. There are several different sizes of buckets to choose from.

After selecting a bucket of NC Gemstone rough our expert staff will set you up at our flume- line with all the instruction and equipment you need to be a certified NC Gemstone miner. After mining our staff will sort your gemstones and identify them for you; educating the miner on the formation and source of the gemstones. During this process our staff will also be grading each gemstone to determine the best stones to be cut and set into jewelry. If desired, our expert gem cutters can cut your rough gemstones and set it into a piece of fine jewelry for far less than a traditional jewelry store.
