Crystal Mine Tour – Ron Coleman Mining

Crystal Mine Tour

While you are at Ron Coleman Mine digging your own crystals, be sure you take a behind the scenes crystal mine tour of Arkansas' premiere quartz crystal mine.  No reservation is necessary.  However, you do want to sign up when you arrive at the mine as the tours are quite popular and book up quickly each day.

What To Expect When You Take The Guided Crystal Mine Tour?

You will view a short video about the history of Ron Coleman Mine, take a guided tour of our Gallery of museum quality mineral specimens (including larger quartz crystal specimens unearthed by Ron Coleman miners Josh, Shane and Andrew).  Remember as you are taking the tour, most specimens in the Gallery are available for purchase. We will load your purchase or ship it to you! Your tour guide will be happy to provide pricing on any specimen. You will then ride in a military vehicle through the public digging area and down to the commercial mine where you will be shown crystal veins, the equipment used by our miners and, possibly, view our miners removing crystals from a pocket.  At the end of the tour you will be taken through the cleaning and sorting area where you will see crystals recently removed from our commercial quartz mine in various stages of cleaning and sorting.  Our friendly tour guide will show you specimens in the different qualities.
