Garnet Ledge Review

Garnet Ledge, a rocky ledge at the mouth of the Stikine River, is the source for garnets sold by local children for 25¢ to $50. The site was deeded to the Boy Scouts in 1962 and to the Presbyterian Church in Wrangell in 2006, so only children can collect these colorful but imperfect stones, the largest of which are an inch across. You can purchase garnets at a few covered shelters near the city dock when cruise ships are in, at the Wrangell Museum, or at the ferry terminal when a ferry is in port.
