The stones themselves are a decent size, about the size of a large pebble or gum all. The box said the block has 8 stones but ours had 10. I'd say it's perfect for ages 5-8.
The only improvement I'd see for this product (but not enough to remove a star), was actually a comment my son made "Mommy, shouldn't there be safety glasses in the box too?"
Such a cute activity, ordering a couple for my mom to have on hand for when the kids are there.
When you open the package, it does say something along the lines of "just like an archaeologist, you have to have patience and scrape carefully or you will scratch your crystals." Well, you must have patience because it took me some seven hours to get the crystals out. A couple times I gave up and had to put it away and come back to it. The one plus is that once you get one or two of the gems out, the others are often just underneath so it does get easier, but there's no way your item is going to look like the picture where you have mostly sand and just pick the gems out.
Oh, and if you are scraping one side and getting nowhere, turn the block over. Most of our gems were closer to one side.
Kit comes with a little gem storing page, a bag to put the gems in, and a plastic hammer/scraper. Our scraper was completely worn down once I was done.
