We had a wonderful time digging in the dirty! Each of us found at least one of the major gemstones possible at the mine to include a 5.9 and a 4.5 sapphire, many garnets, rutile, and siliminite.

We are definitely coming back. 6(^)6

We loved our visit to Cherokee Mine. It was our 20th anniversary & I wanted to 'DIG IN THE DIRT." Well, I found a 53.8 carat star sapphire! What a great anniversary gift! The owners were so nice, very helpful. And they go through your tailings to make sure you haven't overlooked any treasure. We'll definitely be back! 6(^)6

My family of 5 and my brother visited last week. We had a GREAT week at Cherokee Ruby Mine. Nice getting to know Ray and Maria better.

We found some really beautiful stuff. My brother found a 43 carat start sapphire that was unbelievably beautiful.

I can not express in depth the wonderful experiance i had at the cherokee mines. It was a first time for my son and myself and we loved it. The owner is truely one of the kindest and patient human i have met. I live too far away to come often, but i will be back because of how wonderful our time was at this mine. Found many treasures!

Great site, looking forward to a visit for my birthday mid July this year. It will be my 50th, and I ambulate via manual wheelchair. Very much looking forward to the experience and possibly finding a large Ruby as it is my birthstone.

We were there on October 30th, the last customers of the day. Maria, you are an absolutely wonderful lady. You went above and beyond to make sure all our treasures were found. Thanks so much. We truly had a good time. Thanks also for telling us about Bob. The larger garnet was 3.5 carats. He's making that one into a pendant and a couple of the smaller ones will be stud earrings. He'll be mailing them to me in about two weeks.

We hope to come back in the spring. Thanks again for being so gracious and having patience. Jamie and Richie

We had a great day! With the help of Ray and Maria we found a 2 ct beautiful pink sapphire and a large piece of siliminite which the local gem cutter said we could get 2 or 3 good size gems out of it. We also found some garnet and are having 3 gems cutt. Great memories and awesome finds for only 3 hrs of work. We will return again! Thanks Maria and Ray!

We picked the Cherokee Mine because it was unsalted. What we found was a fun, relaxing - even educational introduction to gem mining. The mine is a family business - run by generous, kind people. The owners were knowledgeable and helpful - working through our finds to ensure we found everything (and gently pointed out our rocks). Next time we are in the area, this stop will be at the top of our list.

Had a great time and lucked out with the weather today. Lots of fun pulling out some interesting small finds. Big excitement watching the couple next to us pull a huge beautiful ruby!
