Visit a lead mine in Missouri or crystal mines in ArkansasPosted Wednesday, September 26, 2007, at 11:02 AM
Missouri Mines State Historic Site
If you'd like to do some mining of your own, consider participating in the 21st World's Championship Quartz Crystal Dig in Mount Ida, Arkansas, Oct. 11-13.
The mines around Mount Ida (a town west of Hot Springs) feature some of the best quartz crystals anywhere. For an entry fee of $90 (or $75 if you hurry and register before Oct. 1), you'll be able to dig for quartz crystals during the three-day competition and have the chance to win prizes for the best specimens.
See you there.
