Expect the unusual
Experience Crystal Springs Mining & Jewelry Company, Crystal Springs Gallery, and Mineral Explorers
In founding Crystal Springs Mining & Jewelry Company, Thomas Nagin created a multifaceted and lifelong career of exploration, mining, buying, preparing, and selling world-class gem and mineral specimens from throughout the world. When he travels for minerals, Thomas also finds and brings home a little bit of art and culture in the form of beautiful one-of-a-kind objects from local artists.
Exclusive designers, museum curators, and collectors of every level know Crystal Springs Mining Company is a premier resource. Crystal Springs Gallery is located on Bathhouse Row in beautiful and historic, downtown Hot Springs, Arkansas. Here you’ll find the results of Thomas’ efforts- some really amazing and unusual mineral specimens and art. The Gallery’s friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you explore an extensive collection of minerals, fossils, fine jewelry, and the unique work of local and international artisans.
Want to actually go on the search for great minerals? Mineral Explorers is a non-scripted and authentic, travel-adventure television series, which follows Thomas to mines throughout the world. As creator, producer and host, the idea came to him as an exciting way to share the fascinating world of minerals and to finally answer the many questions he’s been asked over the years … “Where do minerals come from?” “How do they get them out of the mines without damage?” “What are the people and culture like?” and most often, “Can I come with you?” Both Seasons One and Two of this popular PBS series unearth the world of gems and minerals, and are an open invitation to come along for the fun!
The Crystal Springs experience is full spectrum
from the mine, to our expert finishing team and staff, and ultimately, to you!
