The complex is centred around the Tumbletopia cave. The floor of the cave is covered with thousands of polished gem stones which visitors can collect and take home with them. How will you choose; the prettiest, the most valuable or simply those that you are most drawn towards. After this you can visit Prospect Place - an old time Western mine where you can pan in the mine stream for gold or sift through the mine carts for hidden gems. You may even find one of the beautifully cut emeralds, rubies or sapphires. The Discovery Zone is free to enter and has displays about the stones available in Tumbletopia. You can even discover about some of the fossils hidden in rocks and the rich and varied geology of Cornwall. Visitors to the Discovery Zone can also purchase accessories to make their own jewellery and key rings with the stones and beads provided.
