Serious Fluorite collector or just a family trip with children, this is a must stop. The displays are amazing both mineral and mining equipment and the people there are helpful, charming and nice...very nice. Digging in the mine's own tailing piles was a treat because we were able to find our own mementos and at a dollar a pound, a bargain. Call ahead to see when they're open because it is all volunteer staffed and have fun.

Cool place to visit! Open May through End of October, they have a wide variety of fluorite specimens and mining gear. It is not located at the address of Elizabethtown but is easily located as you enter Rosiclare Illinois on 34. Just about 5-6 miles away from the Illinois furnace. I love diving through the rocks for my own collectibles of fluorite!
