Welcome to Crystal Point Diamond Mines, one of the largest quartz deposits ever found on the East coast. Located just outside of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, this fee-dig mine has been visited by people from all over the world. The mine is usually open to collectors from May through October. Rockhound clubs and other groups as well as children are accommodated. The quartz crystal points, resembling diamonds, are very plentiful and easy to dig. Most of your time is spent deciding which ones to keep. If you don’t like to dig, there are plenty around to sift out of the dirt or just pick up.
I have been told that this mine might be closed. Can anyone comment on this?
Crystal Point Diamond Mines is Temporarily closed by the PA Department of Environmental Protection- Bureau of Mines
