What you'll do
If you’ve ever wanted to hunt for minerals, diamonds and crystals, then this road trip is for you! Created especially for our rockhounding customers, Finding Gems & minerals in the historic area of Sanel valley. I have spent years exploring this area and will give you a guided hunt for the most unique and marvelous minerals in the valley. This area boasts a lot of history and discovery. Diamond Dust Gems provides everything you need from picks, shovels, metal detectors, prescious gem & mineral testing equipment to mineral specimens. Rockhounds will be guided to specific areas to hand pick gems and minerals of their desire, while provinding the client specific information on each mineral/gem found. This part of the experience will last approximately 3 hours. While on our journey I will be teaching all aspects of collecting minerals and gems we find.
