Product Description

Geodes are formed naturally by volcanic activity. Bubbles in lava harden, over time natural crystals grow inside of the lave bubbles. Have a great time breaking these geodes open! There are 12 geodes in this pack ranging is size from large marble to golf ball size. They are 90% hollow as with all the geodes sold by Gem Center USA. Geode cracking instructions are included; once the geodes are opened use the geode identification guide to determine which minerals you discovered. Amethyst (rare but possible), smoky quartz and clear quartz natural crystals are found inside these geodes! It's a surprise every time you open one! An Ancient Treasure is waiting to be discovered!!! Great family fun and educational for the kids! 100% naturally occurring geodes with real, genuine crystals! "High Quality Geodes": These geodes have been carefully sorted to insure that they are almost all hollow. The crystals inside will be consistently clean and sparkly with a variety of colors!

I shopped around, looked at reviews. Ended up w/3 of these sets from Gem Center USA (with that name, how can you go wrong?). The one we kept is shown in the video. 12 geodes, ranging in size and color. Obviously rocks were picked from various regions and combined into this great gift. Well done. My 8 year old was so thrilled. And I was, too.

After reading poor reviews for many of the geodes available on amazon (small, lots of duds) we paid a little more for these geodes. We were not disappointed. I used them in a geology summer camp and every child had a good geode. There were no "duds" in the packs. Gem Center USA delivered a quality product at a good price. I will for sure buy from them again next summer. They are not extremely large but the kids were satisfied by the size. The kids thought the geodes were very cool. We had the greatest success cracking them open with a hammer and cold chisel. The geodes contained a mix of calcite and quartzite crystals in various colors. The crystals looked great under a dissecting microscope. These are a great teaching tool or just as a fun gift for a person of any age interested in the subject.

We bought this as one of the Christmas presents for our child this year. See the picture I provided with the product listing. What you see is a tray of a dozen, carefully broken geodes by a 10 year old (of course, under adult supervision). The package of 12 geodes came with instructions, again, see the picture I uploaded. We used a sock and a hammer, carefully following instructions. Both parents and child had fun with the process and were very pleased to see how pretty these geodes are inside! There were no duds. An important pointer: since these are small geodes, try not to hit them too hard or they will get pulverized and you will end up not seeing the real thing and you might think you got a dud. Highly recommended for educational purposes and fun! I would also recommend accompanying it with a geode book for the recipient to read.

I got this as a Christmas gift for my 13 year old son. He loved it along with my 12 year old son my 7 year old son and my 14 year old nephew. They immediately took these geodes, a sock and hammer to the garage and cracked them open. It took 2-3 tries to get it to crack open and he was so excited and proud of himself when it cracked into two perfect halves. I will definitely recommend this product to anyone with children interested in science. It's awesome.Thank you so much.

I had read poor reviews on some of the other geode products--but after reading several positive reviews about this set, I paid the extra money and was not disappointed. Every geode was really good and my students had a great time opening their treasure!

Ordered this product standard shipping and it arrived in two days. my seven yr old daughter and me (her dad) cut these open using a wet saw. each and every one was spectacular. No duds in the entire batch. After each cut we discussed the type of minerals inside. Very educational and super fun. they are rather small, so i strongly recommend a wet saw. You can spray high gloss polyurethane on them to bring out the colors. Great product, totally satisfied.

I have purchased two sets of these and had no duds or solid ones. Most kids will just want to bash them, but with a little patience you can break them in two or just a few big pieces. The smallest rock was about ping pong ball size with most around golf ball size, not bad. There were a variety of colors and most had crystal growth inside.
