Reviewed in Australia on 15 July 2021
Visually disappointing, massive let down, very dull 2 calcite, 2 very, very small quartz (clear) and the rest where rocks with maybe 5% crystal (clear), and none have very much colour at all! It made me reconsider buying the other national geographic packs. Not very easy to open the solid rocks, I personally used a grinder and went through 2 tile cutting blades to cut open most of what you can see, maybe the carbide edged steel blades would cut through the rocks better, you will need to use a dust mask when cutting and cut outside or use ducted vacuum as this method creates rock dust. Great gift for someone who loves rocks, geodes, gems or has an interest in geology.

3.0 out of 5 stars No bright colours in mine, but heaps of fun opening and discovering the inside of real geodes!!
