By Michelle Jones on December 20, 2009
I wanted to give my first graders a unique gift for Christmas. I found a picture book about a moose named Agate and decided that I would read this book to my class and then give them each their own agate. I was surprised to find some that I could afford and the picture of the agates looked as if they were a nice size. I was disappointed when they arrived because they weren't the size that the picture makes them out to be and they weren't as colorful. However, my students loved them. If you purchase these, you may get a lot of dark (or as one student said, dull) colors--not the variety that the picture shows and they fit in the palm of a first grader's hand.

I bought these for homeschool use for my kids to explore on a light table. When they're back lit, the colors really come to life. I uploaded a picture so you could see the variety of the lot we received. (If for some reason it's not showing up, you can click on my name and look under the images I've uploaded to see it.) The oranges seem to be the most attractive and the blues and purples are the most vibrant. I removed one star because we didn't receive the full variety of colors as in the picture. Most of what we received were blues and purples and we are completely missing the greens.

They came tightly packaged without any problems, but within a minute of handling, one was dropped from about 3 feet onto a wood floor and it broke in two. That was my mistake that I didn't realize how fragile they would be.

Still, this is a beautiful set of Agate slices that my kids can enjoy exploring for some time.

I was looking for agate slices for my 6-year old rock collector to use on a light table, among other things. I am not sure why people think these are small, in my opinion these are very typical - about 3 inches in length and 1 1/2 to 2 wide. These slices are quite thin - which makes them more transparent and excellent for viewing on a light table but does make them appear a little more on the fragile side (however, ours have been dropped on a hardwood floor and shaken in a hard plastic container and they have whithstood it all). The colors were wonderful - we received quite a variety of colors including blues, greens, purples, and shades of tan and brown. Overall, these were an excellent purchase and I would buy them again!

Very disappointed, many of these were damaged a few were completely broken into pieces. Package was so big the pieces were floating around and rattleing. Wouldn't recommend these to purchase online, I know I will never again! Here is a picture of a few of them.

Some of our pieces also came broken. Ours was also thrown in the box with minimal packaging. :( But for the others, it was really pretty to see through our light pad which we use for our 2 year old toddler activities.

First of all I am very surprised this turns out to be a toy - I don't feel there is any room to play with, in this slices, or maybe I am just not a child anymore.

I use this slices for making jewelery.
I feel a bit controversial about this pieces. Some of them are my favorites among other cabochons and pendants - very beautiful and eye catching, will bring a wonderful variety to any necklace etc. One or two gave me such a strong inspiration - I couldn't wait to start creating with them!
But at the same time, most of what you get are very dark or gray or brown, or pale/partially transparent, or just some other color that is hard to define. Dark blue or violet at best.
Not catching, they will sit forever in my box with materials.
One came broken in half. Well it wasn't the best one, so I don't care - happily, the brightest ones came safe) and one had a small chunk cracked off it, near the border line, still possible to use if hide a particular detail a little.
So I took one star for 70% of boring colors and one star for 2 of them being damaged.
I wish I had the orange - like the one on the provided picture!

Beautiful, a few have cracks in them but, they are fragile an I feel they were wrapped adequately, just a casualty. They are all lovely and were very well packaged. Great price as well. I will definitely buy more.

Each slice measures approximately 1 1/2" wide- not true! The largest one I received was 1 1/8" at the widest. I got 4 at 1", 3 at 3/4", 3 at 7/8" and one at 5/8". I needed 1 1/2" as described for my project. Colour selection was poor as well. All sorts show in photo, but received 5 blue and 6 purple. Really?
