    Places to search for gems/treasure in Missouri?

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place in Missouri or Arkansas that some friends and I could go and pay to search through buckets of rocks and dirt to find gems/ruby's/crystals/etc?

    go to hot springs village. (different than hot springs) the coleman mines are there. you don't go thru buckets, you dig thru what they bring up from the mine. lots of dirt to dig thru, & excellent crystals!! It's a blast! just wear clothes you don't mind throwing away, (& shoes) cuz the oily red clay never comes out of them. this whole area has wonder ful mines so you have your pick. I have just always gone to coleman cuz I've always had good luck there.
    also on the MO, ARK border there is supposed to be a good place to find sharks teeth, & agate. just google.
    have fun!! & let us know what you find.

    There is a place over in Arkansas called Crater of Diamonds State Park where you can hunt for diamonds in the fields of the park... you just pay an entrance fee that's like under 10 bucks a person for the whole day! Then, you can either rent buckets & screens and other tools you'll need... or you can bring your own!
    And the rules of the park; Finder's, Keepers! You keep whatever you find, even if it's a rare & expensive raw diamond!
    Here's the site with all the info on it...

    Rom. 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

    Rom. 10:10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

    In Northern Missouri, near the Iowa and Illinois borders there is a farm where you pay the farmer a couple of bucks and he has hundreds of geodes on the property. Do a google search of the following: (( Missouri geodes)) and you will find where to go up there. Also go to this website:

    http://www.emporia.edu/earthsci/amber/go336/dreyer/

    The above website lists minerals and locations. I don't think you will find any precious gems in the state if that is what you are after. Nearest location for those is "Crater of Diamonds" in Arkansas, but been there and it is hard work and lots of looking to find a diamond, but you may get lucky.
