PROs: excellent crystal yield and the colors remain vibrant for a longer period than most kits. Materials provided were high quality. Sample stones provided were also really cool and a nice touch.
CONs: The crystals seem to leach salts onto the night light stand for a few days to weeks. We had to constantly clean the light stand off. Minor gripe. The leaching stopped after a few weeks and the crystals are fairly stable now.
I would buy this kit for all my friend's kids. It really is that awesome.
After they were done, I removed the crust from the edges of the cup, poured off the liquid, and eased the crystal out of the cup. They came out easily.
To get the seed rock out, I used a razor blade, went around the edges and flaked off the crystal growth to expose the edges, then used the corner of the blade to pop the rock out. I was veeeery careful and all 4 crystals came out intact!
It takes patience but totally worth it, the resulting night light is a treasure she will probably keep for life.
First batch: We made only the purple crystal this time and it came out white perhaps with a very slight shade of purple. I wasn't able to take out the seed rock because it was very crumbly.
Second batch: We made the lime green which also came out white right out of the bag and the pink that looked like it was going to work but in the end we realized the color stained the chamber but the crystal itself was white again!!
We were unable to take out seed rocks successfully.
We also made the blue crystal in the second batch and while this one was blue, as we set it to dry on a paper towel it seems like most the color leached out of it from the bottom.
As the water was evaporating it made crystal debris on the side of the chambers, should this be pushed down into the crystal mix daily or let it be? As it was indicated not to disturb the crystals we just let it collect on the sides.
We have multiple National Geographic kits and I read the instructions carefully but can't really make anything good happen with this one. Even crystals grown in the same conditions with the same water/pots don't yield the same results.
