“My daughter and I had an Incredible time here! Jessica and her Staff are Fantastic hosts! It’s one thing to read about Gems and Minerals and it’s another be hands-on digging and screening and holding them in your hand! You really get to examine and see their colors and shapes. My daughter walked away with several Beautiful Tourmalines and Micas and, Thanks to Jessica, an Awesome Quartz with an almost Perfect Termination! It’s when one end tapers to a point kind of like the lead of a pencil. Loved the Informative tour in the Jeep around the mine! We both can’t wait for our next visit to Oceanview! Thanks so much to Jessica and her staff for an Unforgettable Experience!!”
“As a miner myself, I understand what all the folks at this mine must do to allow common folks access to the digs and possibly finding some nice gems. Jeff was a bit overwhelming to start but throughout the day he certainly mellowed out and was a pleasure to be with as was Steve and Jeff’s beautiful sister Laura. I had a great time and was worn out by the end of the dig…..I did find a nice Triphane crystal along with some small Tourmalines……Thank You”
