Fantasia offers mining entertainment right at our headquarters with our quartz tailings piles. Fresh tailings are brought in regularly from both the Avatar and Fantasia crystal mines for you to search for beautiful crystal points and plates.

Guests of all ages can mine crystal from these piles, without having to worry about heavy digging or prying at solid sandstone and quartz seams to get to the crystals. Our tailings piles are graded at a low enough angle to be safe, but big enough to entertain even large groups of people!

In our tailings piles people have found many rare crystals, including some with Isis Faces, Channeling Crystals, Generators, Blue Phantoms, Double Terminated, Keys, Twins, Windows, Rainbows, Record Keepers, Tabbys, and more!

The cost for mining in our quartz tailings piles is only $20.00 per day and includes the use of tools and buckets while collecting your quartz. You get to keep everything you dig, and can mine until we close at dusk!

No reservations are needed, so stop by anytime to dig some crystals in our Tailings Piles, or if you want something totally special see the private crystal tailings packages below!

(Limited Quantities - 24 hour notice recommended to guarantee availability)

Fantasia also offers spectacular packages for those wanting guaranteed success! For these packages we go to our mine and hand dig entire crystal pockets and bring them to Fantasia, still uncleaned and unseen in the clay and dirt. Next we add the pockets to a private large tailings pile for you to dig. This way you are the first person to ever see these crystals when you dig them from your own private area!

There are 3 standard packages for our private tailings piles, plus great customizability - All with our 100% money back satisfaction guarantee!

The first is our "Wonderous Dream" package. This includes a medium size tailings pile with one fully excavated crystal pocket. The crystals you get in this package are sometimes totally amazing and other times completely remarkable. Either way, we know you will be thrilled with the crystal that you receive. This is a great option for a person or small group that is only going to be in the area for a short period of time, or for older individuals that need a little assistance. The cost for the Wonderous Dream is $125.00.

The second is our "Crystal Castle" package. This includes a large tailings pile with one standard and one large excavated crystal pocket. This is quite a bit of fantastic crystal and you will want to make sure you have enough room in your vehicles to get it all home! This is a great option for a very enthusiastic person, or a small or medium group. The cost for the Crystal Castle is $250.00.

The third is our "Complete Fantasy" package. This includes a gigantic tailings pile with multiple huge pockets. There is so much amazing crystal in this package that people haven't been able to fit it in their cars and needed to have part of it shipped home! This is great for a totally crystal obsessed individual, an enthusiastic small group, a solid medium group, or a large group. The cost for the Complete Fantasy is $500.00.

We can also customize a package to fit your needs. We can change the amount of tailings, the amount or size of the crystal pockets, and even addi gemstones like rubies, sapphires, emeralds or diamonds to your private tailings piles. Just call us in advance and we will make sure we have exactly what you are looking for!

We are so sure you will love our special packages that we offer a 100% money back guarantee. If you do not have a great time or aren't happy with what you find then you pay nothing - you have nothing to lose and a great day of fun to gain!

If you would like to make a reservation for one of our taillings packages or if you have any further questions or requests, you can call us at 870.490.1699. While we need 24 hour advance notice to guarantee availability, we try to have packages ready at all times. If you are coming out the same day you call, we may be able to accomodate you the same day.
