The fun starts here at Montana Gems of Philipsburg, where you can mine your own Montana sapphires. You can also purchase gravel kits for an at-home experience and shop at the jewelry store. The whole family will enjoy washing sapphire gravel with the running water flume and looking for these coveted Montana treasures.

Just off State Highway 1—the Pintler Scenic Route is a nice alternative to taking the interstate between Butte and Missoula or Montana’s two national parks. Don’t miss a stop at Montana Gems!
