Topaz Hunting

At Bar M Ranch, guests are invited to search Honey Creek and its tributaries for topaz. Blue Topaz is the state gem of Texas—naturally occurring topaz of this variety is quite rare. Mason County, located in the heart of Texas, is the best place in the state for hunters to find the colorless and light blue varieties. As there is no commercial mining of topaz in our area, Bar M Ranch offers everyone the opportunity to search for (and keep, of course!) the gem.

Due to issues beyond our control, as of January 1, 2021 Bar M Ranch is closed to the public.  Thank You for your interest and past support!!   

Available for individual or group hunting | $15 per person/day |
