Welcome to Fantasia Mining! We are the owners of the Fantasia Mine and Avatar Crystal Mine located in Mount Ida, Arkansas. We are professional miners producing tons of minerals per year from our mines. We also visit other mines worldwide and work with those mine owners to obtain some of the best rough and finished minerals for our customers. Mining and beautiful minerals are our passion and we hope to share it with you.

We are in the process of launching an entirely new and exciting site with complete information on our mining operations, a new online store with thousands of items and much more. In the meantime, you can view many of our items which are listed for sale on our eBay store.

Our Most Recent Mining Trip:

On Saturday April 21st we were lucky enough to be allowed to attend a dig for Pyrite Cubes at Standard Mineral, RT Vanderbilt Company located in Glendon, North Carolina. This dig was remarkable and in one day we mined nearly 300 pounds of Pyrite cubes in their natural matrix!
