Dr. Cool provided us with this kit free of charge as a review sample.

The box has 15 little geodes from 1 to 1.5 in. in diameter in a bag, the plastic safety glasses and a glossy, illustrated booklet that explains how geodes came into existence and their various types.

The actual fun is the breaking of geodes to reveal the crystals inside and this is where I am deducting half a star. While this is a very interesting activity, it's also something that children, especially children from ages 6-12 simply can't do on their own. The rocks were not easy to break and, as hard as she tried, our 9 yr. old armed with a hammer and a chisel could barely scratch the surface. Our 15 and 16 yr. olds found the rocks difficult to break as well - yes, anyone can smash rocks with a big hammer but the goal is to only crack them into 2 halves, 3 (thirds) at most.

Our first session lasted more than an hour and it consisted of reading the 8-page booklet and then the kids and myself worked on breaking the rocks open. Once a geode was successfully cracked we would spend some time trying to identify it using the booklet as our guide, then admire than crystal formations inside. We cracked 8 out of the 15 provided rocks, saving the rest for a second session. I don't know if it was luck but most of the geodes we opened were quite interesting, including a very nice Amethyst geode, some containing nice and clear Quartz crystals and some with smaller crystals but arranged in interesting formations.

This can be a fun and educational activity for as long as the geode-cracking part is left to the grownups.

This Ultimate Geodes Science Kit is without a doubt one of the coolest science related sets for kids! We are science enthusiasts and enjoy doing educational project so this Geode kit was a fit for us.

The kit includes 15 unopened Geodes, a glossy manual, and safety goggles. The glossy instruction book is packed full of details on how geodes are formed and is very informative. The geodes range in size from about 1.5" to 2.5" in diameter and most can indeed be broken open by children in the target age range (6 and up). We place the geodes into a thick plastic freezer bag (see video) and we all enjoyed opening them with a hammer (not included), with "Whack it again!" as a common encouragement! The inclusion of plastic safety goggles was a nice touch and very responsible of the kit maker.

Out of 15 geodes, we were able to open 14 of them without much effort and the last one was able to be opened by me with a very heavy hammer. The crystals inside ranged from fairly small to impressively nice, but all of them were good looking and definitely worth having.

This is a great family activity that teaches important geological information and gives you a lasting, pretty reminder in the form of the opened geodes.

Highly Recommended!

I bought a few different sets of Geodes for my kids for Christmas. These were by far the best quality Geodes and they were larger than I expected them to be. Each one cracked open to reveal a large cavity with great crystals. They took some effort to open but the results were great. We used some books I bought as well as the included pamphlet to identify the type of crystals. They have added these to their rock collection. This was much more fun then just buying the already cut rock samples as they got to do this themselves.

My children had TONS of fun breaking these geodes open, and I liked the fact that the kit included safety goggles. I'm glad we got the ultimate kit. There were a number of differences in the crystal formations inside, and it was fun to compare the crystal treasure.

This kit had 15 geodes in it along with decent goggles and a few booklets of interesting info. There were three different types of geodes as described. I'm giving this kit 3 stars because of those 15 geodes, 8 were the clear, very common type. These 8 were very lightweight and basically shattered into many pieces after tapping lightly with a hammer only a few times. We've been breaking geodes for years and have never come across such brittle ones. The other 7 geodes in this kit took a while to open (we take our time and tap and rotate them so they split in half) and were brown, gray or white inside. Cool. For the price, there are kits with better quality geodes available (we actually ordered one with this kit).

All that said, the 8 brittle geodes are still sparkly, kids are still full of wonder when they break open and these are easier for them to break themselves although it's almost impossible to keep them from shattering. Just know this kit is heavy on the clear, brittle geodes.

This science kit was a huge hit at our house. The kids loved cracking them open and the crystals inside were beautiful. I am glad that we bought the ultimate kit because it was nice seeing the 3 different types of crystals. The guide book was well done. Certainly a fun time had by all.

Got this geode set for my two boys, aged 5 and 6 for Christmas. This may have been their favorite gift. It was definitely mine! Such a cool thing to break open the geodes and see what's inside. It comes with a little booklet that teaches about how geodes are formed and what the different types are, etc. Perfect!
