As seen in ROCK & GEM and ROCK & MINERALS magazines

The Diamond Hill prospect is located in upper part of South Carolina. Over millions of years, erosion has occurred to the southern part of the Appalachian Mountains which is one of the oldest mountain chains in the world. This has exposed a small 3 acre spot full of some of the widest variety quartz crystals in the world, known as Diamond Hill! Some of the best Amethyst, Smokey, Skeletal(Elestial), Angle Plated, Iron & Manganese Oxide coated, Aura, and other crystals are found here! Other rare minerals have also been recovered!

You can dig from daylight until dusk if you have a current signed waiver. Digging is allowed anywhere on the property unless it is marked as "No Digging"

It is not uncommon for people to take home a car loads of crystals and clusters in one single day! You will not find much amethyst as it is more rare, but most people find at least a piece or two.
