Lampivaara Amethyst Mine
A fascinating travel destination all year round
The amethyst of Lampivaara, located in Pyhä-Luosto Lapland, Finland, was formed about 2 000 million years ago in the bowels of the ancient mountains. There is now a special gem mine on the top of the hill that will sustain for the hundreds of years. A unique experience is waiting for you!
Dig your own gem stone of Lapland, purple amethyst, during your visit to Amethyst Mine. On the top of Lampivaara hill you can admire maybe the most beautiful landscape of the area. During the storytelling moment you will learn about this fascinating stone. Afterwards everyone may search and dig own amethyst stone and take it with as a memento.
