Cedar Panning Co. offers a fully operational sluice for panning rough gems and crystals. Buy bucket loads of mining rough (sand or dirt with gems, crystals and fossils in it) and learn mining techniques by shoveling the rough into the screens and rinsing in the sluice to discover gems! You can keep any gems, fossils, or crystals you find; the only limit to what to do with your treasure is your imagination!
