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.

Sweet Surrender Crystal Mine

So you come to dig. We will give you a brief lesson on safety and let you know the places where you can and can’t go.  After all this is a commercial operational crystal mine.  You have to know the do’s and don’t’s of the mine.  If you have trouble getting your eye going on finding crystals we will also show you what to look for and answer any and all of your questions.
There are two picnic tables for you to rest and/or eat your lunch.  Some just use them to sit on and talk to other diggers.  Several friendships have been formed at the mine with people trading email address and business cards.  We even have a honeymoon couple show up on occasions that still come back to the mine for their anniversary.
We do also invite Rock and Mineral Clubs to the mine.  If there are several people in the club we will have extra people come to the mine to help.  These extra miners are to answer questions, and help carry buckets and/or rocks.
Then if you still want more crystal other than what you have found at the mine, we can help there also.  We do sell crystals at a wholesale price clean or dirty.  (We won’t tell anyone if you buy them dirty). 
Please call to schedule an appoitntmet.
