The product you see here - the Quartet Alpha Chalk, is NOT NOT NOT the same chalk that I just described. Ouartet bought the original manufacturer of this chalk. The original chalk was actually called Triple-size P/C Polychromatic Alphasite Chalk and the original manufacturer was Weber Costello. I have posted a photo of the green and white box, and then the following black and gold box that I imagine are the ones everyone remembers. Again, the chalk shown here for sale on Amazon is NOT the same chalk compound/recipe as the chalk in those boxes. This "new" Alphacolor chalk is the type of chalk that is designed for use on construction paper, sidewalks, and such surfaces. As other reviews have stated, it will scratch and mar chalkboard surfaces. I only know of two brands of good chalkboard chalk these days. It seems everyone is switching to the stinky marker boards.
Wrong, the chalk is actually quite "rocky". The first words I wrote on my chalkboard ended up being permanent, because the chalk actually *scratches* the board. Fortunately, having written over that area many times, and erased it many times, the scratches are difficult to notice.
My chalk came in tact, but I can tell why the chalk would easily break. It is extremely brittle (perhaps due to its density, or lack thereof).
I definitely do not recommend this chalk.
-The "nice clear", smooth, and easily readable line is now rough and choppy. Furthermore, it no longer erases as easily as before.
-It's much rougher in the hand to write with than before.
-Instead of one box of 12 sticks lasting a full term with some chalk left over, I went through two full sticks in one 80-minute lecture.
In short, everything that used to be good about is chalk is now mediocre to bad. Meanwhile, the price went up 50%. I'm not going to bother ordering it again.
OLD REVIEW (left here for posterity, but no longer accurate): Overall I was very happy with this chalk. It felt comfortable in the hand, and wrote with a nice clear line that was easily readable from far away (except for my awful handwriting...but that's not the chalk's fault!) I'm planning on buying another box next time I get stuck using a chalkboard.
That being said, I had two issues with it. The "low dust" didn't really seem much lower than usual for me, though I guess it wasn't any worse than other chalk I've used. More seriously, Amazon does not seem to pack this chalk well for shipping. In my case the chalk arrived in an envelope with no other padding, and the lower layer of chalk sticks were almost all broken (for the most part into large enough pieces to still be usable). From other reviews I've read, this seems to be a common problem with Alpha chalk ordered through Amazon.
Still, the good outweighs the bad here.
