Ledford's Minerals is a 6th generation gem and mineral mining company. For generations, Ledfords have been mining some of the finest mineral specimens the southeastern US has to offer. We specialize in Jackson’s Crossroads Amethyst, the Canford Beryl Mine and the Henson's Creek Mine as well as several other local, prime locations, bringing the minerals straight from the mining source to you.
Our main focus is fine, southeastern US minerals though we enjoy and appreciate minerals throughout the world. If you are looking for something we don't currently have, special requests or questions in general, please do not hesitate to contact us, we would be happy to assist you.
Thank you for your time and support!
