Our Treasure Quest

Treasure Quest Mining springs out of our passion for spending time with our son and embarking on a true treasure hunt together. When we're not working, you'll often find us metal detecting, searching for fossils along the coast, or digging for gems in the mountains. We cherish those times spent on family vacations gem-hunting in the North Carolina mountains or searching for shells and sharks teeth at the beach. So much so, that we decided to bring that experience closer to home for kids and their families to enjoy. And so, we opened Treasure Quest Mining, an indoor gem mine and prehistoric gift shop in Apex, North Carolina. We invite Treasure Hunters young and old to mine for gems and minerals, dig for shells and fossils, and crack open geodes to reveal the beautiful crystals within.

We are a family-run, mom-pop-and-son, business in the truest sense. Our son enjoys helping our guests during their Treasure Quest, particularly when it comes to identifying their treasures. But then again, he has always loved playing with rocks and getting his hands dirty! We’ve definitely made this a family-affair and even our two dogs, Brooke and Ruby (yep, you guessed it – she was named after the precious gemstone), join in on the adventure.

We are continuously amazed and find ourselves in awe of the beautiful gems and minerals, seashells, and fossils we discover. It is important to us to honor and celebrate the natural beauty of these creations - they are truly earth's treasures. As such, we do not shape, color or alter in any way the natural stones, shells or fossils. Each piece carries with it the marks of time - both perfections and imperfections. And it is these markings that make the piece beautiful and one of a kind.

In our shop you will find, bulk items for sale for the craft, rare earth treasures and jewelry items. In addition to exploring our Easy shop, we invite you to visit our website to learn more about the gems, minerals, shells, and fossils in our collection. You can learn more about these treasures by visiting our identification pages: http://treasurequestmining.com/treasure-identification/

We thank you for spending time exploring our treasures! We appreciate your business and support of our family-run adventure.

    We enjoy spending time with our son searching for treasure, gem mining and fossil hunting. That time spent together making memories and discovering the treasures in nature inspired us to create our family-run adventure - Treasure Quest Mining.

Frequently asked questions
When can I expect my package?

We ship quickly, processing orders within 1-2 business days. Your treasures will be packaged appropriately to ensure a safe journey.

Given the impact covid and high shipping volumes have on the USPS, you should expect minor delays in receiving your package. You will receive tracking information once the order ships, we encourage you to monitor the delivery status and timeline. Please know that we do not have additional information beyond that which is available through the USPS tracking data.

We do not ship broken or damaged items, should the item have sustained damage during transit, please notify us within 3 days of receipt. If it arrives broken, we would appreciate the chance to make it right. Thank you.

Do you provide a packing slip or offer gift wrapping?

No and No. Save your digital receipt from Etsy as we do not provide you with a printed invoice or packing slip, we try to do our part to save resources.

In order to keep our costs low and pass the savings onto you, we have skipped the frills of fancy packaging and do not offer a gift-wrapping service. We do remove any price tags, so no worries there!

Do you include description or identification cards with my purchase?

To help keep our costs low and pass those savings on to you, we do not provide description or identification cards with the treasures. You are welcome to reference the descriptions and details we provide in our listings as a tool for your use.

Please do not ask us to provide a printed, or handwritten description of the item. Thank you!

Are your items real?

All of the gems, minerals, and fossils we sell are authentic. Select stones are manmade or color-enhanced and will be labeled as such in the product description (such as Opalite or Goldstone).

We take great pride in source the highest quality materials, from reputable sources, to ensure that you are investing your hard-earned dollars into an authentic piece. Nothing upsets us more than a marketplace flooded with fakes!

We are happy to answer any questions you may have, we want you to feel comfortable and confident in your purchase. We hope you enjoy your new, authentic, treasure!

Do you offer bulk pricing or discounts?

We hand select only the best pieces for you, our online customer as we know you are not able to pick it out in person yourself! And we take great care to package it carefully. With the care and time we invest in each piece, we do not offer bulk discounts.
