Fun Fact: The Emerald Hollow Mine is the only emerald mine in the United States open for public prospecting. Nestled snugly in the foothills of the beautiful Brushy Mountains, this emerald mine is located in the small town of Hiddenite. This area is recognized as one of the most unique and interesting geological locations on the North American continent. The largest emerald found in North Carolina (1,438 carats) was found at Hiddenite. Hiddenite is also famous as the only place on earth where the very rare gemstone “Hiddenite” can be found.
