The Gem Flume

Rushville, Il

At the Gem Flume, sometimes called a sluice box, participants will receive a bucket of rough material. The material is poured into a screen, swished and washed in a stream of moving water. As this happens a colorful mixture of shiny and colorful gemstones appear. Some of the gemstones may include ruby, emeralds, garnets, topaz, aquamarine and over a dozen other gemstones. Keep all you find.
