The Utah Queen (Formally known as the Crystal Mine) is located within the ghost town of Jacob City. It's nickname is derived from the high abundance of large calcite crystal formations toward the end of a side passage deep within the mine. The mine is gated, but one can squeeze through the bars in the gate. The mine is deep and provides a few hours of good exploring. There are still a few artifacts within.
