Formation: Geodes are formed naturally by volcanic activity. Bubbles in lava harden, over time natural crystals grow inside of the lave bubbles. What's Inside? Have a great time breaking these geodes open! There are 12 geodes in this pack ranging is size from large marble to bigger than golf ball size. They are hollow geodes. 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! Ancient Treasure Adventures: An Ancient Treasure is waiting to be discovered!!! We are family owned company with 3 generations of experience exploring and mining geodes.

So, the "fairies" left my son 3 of them yesterday. We stablized each one and I helped him hit them with a hammer. They broke easily enough, but the small one shattered into several pieces, and the largest 1.5" geod broke into 3 pieces. Inside were interesting crystals but both were mostly white with hints of black on one and faint pink on the other. I'm disappointed. Nothing much to display (crack into pieces), too small, not a lot of color variety. For $25 I expected more. I gave an extra star because my son liked them and was delighted when they cracked open.
All 24 geodes except for 1 were hollow with great crystal matrices inside. Lots of variation in size, form (i.e. big spire terminations and druse), and color. Only advice would be not to do as the kit advises by just taking a hammer to the rock.
What I did to achieve clean breaks on about 19 of my geodes: examine the rock for where it might be likely to break open (or where you would like it to break if you want to take a risk haha, it can pay off). Use a chisel and hammer to score it around that line. Try to find two "flat" spots on the rock mostly opposite each other and on the line (if you can't, just one flat spot on the line will do) and take the chisel to those spots specifically. Do all of this with the rock still in the bag provided, of course! If you just hit it with a hammer, it's more likely to be smashed into lots of tiny shards instead of larger pieces. Some of them will shatter even with patience and the right approach, lol. Even though these are inexpensive geodes, with patience and the right approach you can definitely get most of them to break cleanly and look like they were bought already opened!
*We had no luck at all cracking them with a hammer, they were tough, even when adding a chisel to the equation ! Switched to a mini sledge. Victory.
*Don't understand the "smashing bags", they had holes after one geode. Ziploc bags to the rescue. We smashed them on the driveway.
*Kit doesn't come with recommended safety googles, fyi.
