An Upstate New York crystal
mining dream come true!
The property has been in the family for over 40 years, and it wasn't until 2020 when a few rockhounds came to do some exploratory digging that we started MVMM. Our family never had a big interest in crystals until we found out about the 100,000 rock hounders in New York State. We then found out we have New York State's largest Herkimer Diamonds (quartz crystal) ever found. From there, this discovery snowballed into a rock hound's dreams. Hike onto our land and spend the day digging for quartz crystals. Take what you can carry out. Maybe you can beat our record size crystal!
Our mission is to provide an enjoyable digging experience while preserving natural habitat for future generations to come. Please be respectful to each other and the planet, if you carry it in, carry it out!
Our dig experience is a true deep-woods guided adventure. We limit the number of guests each day in order to ensure a private experience, with plenty of instruction time with the guides if needed. Our dig days last from 8am-until you decide to leave, and start with quick introductions, and basic information about the land and amazing Herkimer Diamonds you can expect to find here with us!
Accessibility is a top-priority for us. We accommodate all ages. We are open 7 days a week! Learn more about the types of digs we offer and book your dig here!
