Search Hiddenite North Carolina

Hiddenite is located in Alexander County between Statesville and Lenoir along Highway 90 near Taylorsville, Lookout Shoals Lake, and the South Fork of the Yadkin River. Hiddenite is part of the Hickory-Morganton, North Carolina metro area.

Named after a mineral found locally, the gem was named for William Earl Hidden, a mineralogist sent to North Carolina by Thomas Edison to find platinum. An ancient fault line makes this region rich in minerals, particularly emeralds.
