Please note the Artisan Village and the Museum will go to limited hours for the summer; starting in May we will be open from 9 to 12 on Saturdays only. The Chamber of Commerce will be open Monday to Friday and when possible will take people around the village. Also, you can email me at to set up special tours.

The next meeting of the Pinal gem and Mineral Society will be on Wednesday May 17. The program will be Gold, Silver, and Copper in Pinal County by Ray Grant. 

A new very large calcite specimen is on display in the Museum it is from near Dinamita, Durango, Mexico and was donated by Dana Slaughter. What is unusual about the specimen is that it is composed of twin crystals. Twining in minerals follows certain rules and can only happen in certain crystallographic directions versus the random intergrowth of crystals.


Looking for some donations big and small. We have given away hundreds of apache tears to kids and are almost out so if you have some you can donate please do.

We are working on a rock dig for kids next to the building. They will be able to collect some specimens to take home. We will do desert landscaping around the dig area and I would like to add some mining memorabilia. If you have or know someone who has ore carts, ore buckets or other appropriate items that they are willing to donate (tax deduction) please contact me (
