Lampivaara Amethyst Mine is a unique attraction in Lapland. This real and special gem mine is located on the top of a fell in the middle of Pyhä-Luosto national park. The geological age of the area is billions of years. The view at and from the mine is breathtaking and the site beams positive energy stored in stones. Amethyst Mine is operating in extraordinary way: no big machines are used for digging and none of the rich deposit is sold as a raw material. The sustainable Amethyst Mine is welcoming visitors all year round. The open quarry is partly covered and well lighted for digging in winter.
An informative story of amethyst that includes explanations about the geology and nature of the area and the formation of amethyst crystals 2000 million years ago.
