Explore Bay Ontario, Ontario Canada and more!

Day-tripping prospectors can ‘dig-your-own’ chunk of sparkling purple amethyst at the big rock field at Canada’s largest amethyst mine, Amethyst Mine Panorama. (Did you know amethyst has been Ontario’s official gemstone since 1975?) Open seven days a week from May to October, a visit here is a multi-adventure of geology, history, nature exploration and hands-on digging for the perfect piece of purple rock.
