    The sustainable Lampivaara Amethyst mine is possibly the only gemstone mine in the world that welcomes visitors. The Amethyst mine is located on the top of the hill. The owner tells the story about mine and describes the process of mining. After the introduction, you will go upper to dig up the lucky amethyst for yourself, that has waited 2000 million years to be found. Of course, you will be provided with special equipment and snow-cat lift you on the hill. During the midwinter time, when a veil of darkness covers Lapland, you may even see the Northern Lights in the middle of the day.
