Wegner Quartz Crystal Mines

Great place for the whole family, where everyone is welcome and guaranteed to find crystals.

Wegner Crystal Ranch is 218 acres of nature’s beauty surrounded on four sides by the Ouachita Mountains. Spring water feeds our streams and ponds encouraging wildlife. The stone columns a tour gate are built with our quartz crystal. On this ranch we dig, buy, and sell crystals and we invite you to participate. Our warehouse is four floors with over 10,000 sq. ft. of crystals from our mines as well as minerals mined in the United States and imported from around the world. It is surrounded outside by acres of crystals stockpiled for the future. Browse to your hearts content.

But many want to dig their own crystals; it is a special experience. We offer a variety of options, attuned to the ability and interests of different “miners.” So consider Wegner’s as an amazing crystal museum, an opportunity to buy, or fulfillment of your desire to dig. Whatever your preference, please review our website and come on out. Crystal Forest Mine is our most popular activity. This large 40 acre surface mine is regarded highly for its’ abundance of clear crystals that are suitable for jewelry. Quartz Crystal clusters, garden rocks and bigger points are also found here on a regular basis. Collecting at this mine is easy as picking up the crystals exposed on the
surface, especially after a good rain. Or, for those who want a little more challenge and want to try their luck at hard rock mining, there are veins available to you throughout the mine site
