Dahlonega

various gem stones including amethyst and amazonite On our trip around part of N. GA saturday we passed through Dahlonega. Of course, when in Dahlonega you must pan for gold. We toured a mine, panned for gold, and went gem-grubbing. Note: If you pan for gold, don't expect much unless you purchase the high-grade ore. Here's a sample of some of the gems we found. I've identified some and am working on the rest.
