5.0 out of 5 stars Much Much better than the cheaper kits! Great FUN! Kids Loved It!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 February 2021
This Mega Gemstone kit from National Geographic is just awesome! I've had cheaper kits and this one is ten times better! You get 15 good sized gems, quality learning booklet for kids, large sized brick, chisel, magnifying glass and brush, it's a guaranteed fun packed couple of hours, well worth £27.99, highly recommended!

✔ 15 good sized gems
✔ Large digging brick
✔ Educational booklet
✔ Tools included
✔ Hours of fun
✔ Good value for money

Be prepared for hours of fun with this kit, there's plenty of gems buried in a good sized digging brick. The quality is excellent when compared to cheaper versions, yes I've had them and it's all over in minutes.

The kit comes well presented in a lovely box. Inside is the brick which is sealed and has a fantastic purple mould of a gemstone on top, not sure what it is though. A small plastic chisel is included along with a magnifying glass, which is plastic by the way (kid friendly), and a small brush to dust off the gems when you find them. The enclosed A5 booklet is very educational, it contains 10 pages of useful information regarding the gems that you may find with good, clear, big pictures.

Before digging away, I'd suggest using the enclosed packaging for holding the brick in as this will help catch all the debris from the brick. I also had a handheld vacuum handy to pick up straying bits of brick, this may sound a bit particular but this stuff make a real mess! If it's the Summer than I would be taking it outside to do on the patio.

Adult supervision is needed to help the kids along, but other than that, they enjoyed themselves. All 15 gems were found, randomly scattered throughout the brick.

I soaked the discovered gemstones in water afterwards to clean them up and they now look marvellous. In our dig we found the following gems; Pyrite, Quartz, Tiger's Eye, Aragonite, Amethyst, Fluorite, Hematite, Snowflake Obsidian, Rose Quartz, Aventurine, Sodalite, Red Jasper, Desert Rose, Agate and Geode.

This is a great educational product and provides hours of fun, I'm very happy to recommend it.

Package Contents:
1 x Large brick
15 x Gems (buried)
1 x Chisel
1 x Brush
1 x Magnifying glass
1 x Instructions/Information booklet

The packaging makes this suitable for gifting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its okay but a few faults and underwhelming
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 January 2021
as a whole it was a really nice kit and a great idea, there were however a few faults I wanted to point out for future shoppers to be aware of and the seller. (included tea light candle in the photo for size reference)
Pros:
- the clay/ sand the gems were hidden in is a great consistency, it doesn't just fall apart but isn't too tough to scrape.
- I was a little worried about the brick arriving broken but thankfully it was fully intact when I received it
- definitely great to keep yourself entertained for a while
Cons:
- it does seem to come down to luck on whether the finds are sizeable as I've seen a few others find much much better things than I did, so bare in mind it is a chance game on how good the gems will be
- the quartz in my dig kit was quite damaged
- the agate seemed to be missing and replaced with another crystal or then really underwhelming, the booklet showed majestic orange stripes and the crystal I cant identify is greyish white with no detail whatsoever (I included a photo of the presumed agate and mystery geode
- the amethyst was extremely small which is a shame as I've seen others get really majestic amethyst geodes out of this kit.
Overall I think if you're looking for something to do it is worth it but if you're most excited about the crystals don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Customer Service!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 March 2018
In our set the desert rose was missing, although it was 15 gemstones altogether. However my son was upset for that reason and we contacted Customer Service (Discover with Dr.Cool) which is just fabulous! They told us what kind of gemstones we've got, and proposed to send to us a replacement of missing desert rose or choice of a new set for free as compensation. My son is a very happy and proud owner of gemstones and fossils sets :-) Thank you!
