Jackson's Crossroads Amethyst Mine is one of the best known operating Amethyst mines. Single crystals or clusters, matrix specimens, and faceted stones from this locale can display some unique qualities of color and growth patterns. Ranging from light violet to deep purple with blue and red color shifts, this fairly new locale has quickly gained popularity throughout the gem and mineral community and is now recognized as one of the premier mines in North America. The mine has been featured in Mineralogical Records and American Mineral Treasures book. We were featured in the 2008 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in the "50 Greatest American Mineral Mines" exhibit. We will be at The Westward Look Show in the upcoming 2018 TGMS show.
If you are interested in visiting the Jackson's Crossroads Amethyst Mine to find your own JXR Amethyst, please contact us. We offer the general public the opportunity to experience the mine going through large granite rocks, breaking them open and digging through soft tailings brought to the upper ground for safe digging. We would like to offer others the same experience of finding their own treasures!!
