Hello from Mount Ida… It is now Springtime, a truly magical time here in Arkansas. Blue skies with white puffy clouds. Green trees, colorful flowers, and new young wildlife of all kinds.
Already the tourist season is going strong. We’ve already welcomed many groups of scouts and clubs to our mines. Most recently, a group of students from Japan came to Arkansas and joined up with students from the college of math and science here. They went to our Crystal Forest Mine last week. Here is a picture of just a few of them in the back of one of the three mine tour trucks on their way to dig. Such a wonderful group.
We are excited to announce yet another fun activity to do when you come to visit. We just introduced an extension to our existing Diamond Experience activity called the Colored Gemstone Bag. For $16.00 you receive a silken silver or gold pouch of gemstone bearing gravel. Sitting in air conditioned comfort, you sort out the gemstones which include amethyst, peridot, green and blue apatite, emerald, fluorite, garnet, kunzite, opal, topaz and quartz crystal in every pouch. The great deal is that you can do both the diamond experience and the new colored gemstone activity for $40.00. This is a $5.00 savings.
Finally, we are going to be adding a new HOT DEAL button to the home page of our website. By clicking on it, the user will find money saving offers for activities. Look for it to be coming soon.
That’s all for now,
All of us at Wegner Crystal Mines .
