Black Light Mining Experience

Coming back soon!

Due to Covid-19, we have had to discontinue black light mining due to the small area of the black light room and the inability to distance guests for safety.

These buckets are a one of a kind found only here at Pisgah Forest Gem Mine.  You can find several different fluorescent minerals that glow in our special black light gem mining room.  Currently, this is available Mon-Fri in the Pisgah Forest Location only.
