Welcome to the Amethyst Mine!                                 




Near the Luosto fell center, in the middle of beautiful Lappish sceneries, you will find the only operative amethyst mine in Europe. Lampivaara Amethyst Mine is probably the only gem mine in the whole world that welcomes visitors. On top of the fell, visitors are led into the fascinating world of amethysts. You will hear thousands of years old stories and you'll get to mine your own lucky amethyst, which has waited 2000 million years for someone to find it.
