Garnet Ledge

Fodor's Review

This rocky ledge at the mouth of the Stikine River is the source for garnets sold by local children. 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 Nolan Center, or at the ferry terminal when a ferry is in port.
