*It is best to be here by 2pm as Gem Mining takes at least 3 hours of time if all of your Admission Buckets are NATIVE BUCKETS - Rainbow Mining is much faster, so if you don't want to find rubies or sapphires, then you can get here as late as 4:30 and still have time to mine for Gemstones from around the World, - they don't come from here like the Native Rubies & Sapphires do, so finding Rainbow Stones is a whole lot faster and easier.
