Home of the honkers

The focal points of the Sheffield Mine site are the office/store and flume, which is used for sifting through buckets of dirt in hopes of finding a "squeaker" (gem weighing between 15 and 30 carats), a "honker" (30-100 carats) or a "super honker" (100+ carats). The "mine" is actually a huge pile of mud from which buckets are filled and sold to customers for sifting at a mere $2 each.
