This place is awesome! We had a birthday party here for our daughter and everyone had a blast. Friendly, wonderful staff and an awesome experience for kids both young and old.


Amazing!! What a “gem” of a place in Apex. We were so impressed with our families visit this summer that I had to book my girls’ birthday party here. Fun, affordable, no obnoxious gimmicks, very kind and accommodating owner and staff. Recommend 100%! As a side note, their selection of Crystals are very competitively priced. Great stop just for crystals too!!


I hate to recommend this place, lest everyone steal my secret! There are a few rock shops in Raleigh. I’ve been to most of them. This one has the BEST deals by far. Inventory will change regularly, as they hand-pick everything they buy. Literally. You will pay 4-8 times as much at other places. Plus, and this is a BIG plus, they know the source of everything. Once you buy a few fakes, you know how important this is. They also have rare stuff! I bought a super 7 crystal and a piece of shungite (straight from Russia) for about $10. #morethanmeetstheeye


Great place to bring your kids for indoor fun. The owner is great. Staff is very nice and engaging, they take time to talk to everyone as well as explaining fossils and minerals individually. Very clean as well.


 The owners are knowledgeable and helpful every time we visit. We have done gem mining at other locations throughout the state but none have been as enjoyable. I highly recommend Treasure Quest Mining for their knowledge and value.
