Our mine contains abundant quantities of sapphires and other precious minerals in sufficient quantity to make rock collecting both pleasurable and profitable.

We went on a Saturday and no one that worked there was there. Luckily, some folks who had been there all day showed us the ropes. The gentleman said he was charged $20 a person and if I had known this was the price I would not have made the trip. We hightailed it after that point.
