How it works...
~ Small 1 shovel full $10.00
~ Medium 3 shovel full $30.00
~ Large 5 shovel full $50.00
~ What your gemstones or fossils are
~ How they formed
~ The minerals that made each rock
~ What states and mines the gemstones came from
~ A brief Appalachian Mining history lesson
~ Note; this part is completely optional because your rocks never expire and you can always mail them in to be cut at a later date!
Doc's Rocks Gem Mine is an Appalachian Mountain based gemstone mining operation. We purchase mine ore by the ton from local gemstone mines located in North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Tennessee. We then randomly shovel the ore into buckets and resell it to the general public. Since we don't intentionally put stones into your buckets for you to find, we can't guarantee what you'll find in the ore. However, if you don't find anything of value, we'll provide an equal amount of the ore you purchased for free so you'll have another chance to find something good.
