5.0 out of 5 stars We loved this! Bought and opened twice, beautiful crystals each time.
By I.N. on January 2, 2020
We've gotten two of these kits, one several months ago for my daughter's 7th birthday (first image, with the organizer), and one for Christmas for her older sister (second image, by request after seeing her sister's birthday geodes). Both times we were very happy with what we had gotten, and I love the educational value, not just the geodes inside. The kids were fascinated and really enjoyed seeing what was inside. It's kinda like those kinder eggs/surprise toys, but naturally created! I have since bought a 3rd set when it was on sale (not opened yet). Yes, for the most part they are all white, however the first kit did contain crystal that was very pale purple (possibly amethyst?), and the second kit contained a milky pink mineral with a small crystally agate section. The first kit we had were mostly around 2 inches, the second kit had a wider range, of a couple really small 1 inch ones but a couple in the 3-4 inch range. Both kits we had resulted in a variety of hollow and full geodes, and varying size of crystal points, some small very glittery looking ones, and larger clearer ones. The second kit we had did contain a kind-of-dud, where there were tiny crystals, but mostly rock, but that was only one out of now 20 geodes we've opened from NatGeo. We have tried a different brand of break-your-own-geodes in the past, and they resulted in very few crystals (only around 20 to 30% had crystals), so I was very pleasantly surprised at what we got with the NatGeo kits. I might try to sand/polish a couple at some point. They were difficult to open, and did require adult assistance. I used a dremel to score the perimeter and provide a groove for the chisel to sit in (my dremel/dremel bits weren't strong enough to get through the crystal, just the outer rock), and then we used a chisel and hammer to crack it open. My kids were able to hammer some of the smaller ones open (with assistance holding the rock and chisel). But some, especially the solid ones, were still very difficult to crack open. Those took more time, but I (a petite, but persistent, female adult) did manage to crack them open with the chisel and hammer. In terms of "giftability" it really depends on the recipient/recipient's family.... as long as there is a willing (and patient?) adult to do most of the work as kids won't be able to do this themselves, it's a wonderful gift! But if not, they might not enjoy this as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun, and beautiful
By John Duggan on May 6, 2017
Kiddo loves these (7 year old girl) we have smashed 3 open so far and found 2 different types of quarts, one that is almost solid through with large quartz points and two with very fine quartz crystals that look like heavy frost.

will be breaking open more and discussing what we fine, where to strike, how best to display them. A lot of fun and she is interested in learning more about geology because of this.

1.0 out of 5 stars 0% geodes. Another national (disgrace) geographic ripoff!
By DB on February 24, 2019
I was thinking there would be a geode or two in this geode kit. Natgeo has gone the way of the history channel. Garbage.

If I had an heirloom collection of national geographic magazines, I would burn them.

Thanks for making my kid cry AGAIN. The crystal growing kit was garbage, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not like representation and disappointing!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 15, 2020
Very disappointed with this product. The advertisement provides pictures of geodes of different colours, however they were are white and some had no centre, looking simply like sparkly stones. As these were bought for a 10 year olds birthday, he was very excited to crack each one open to be disappointed as they all appeared to be the same each time. Out of the whole box, he probably got 1 or 2 half decent geodes. Unfortunately even these do not look like the ones advertised. A very exciting gift but very disappointing when used. It’s heartbreaking when you see your child excited to then be let down as each one is cracked open.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment and waste of money
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 23, 2020
Huge disappointment - the children were very excited to get this but were sadly let down. After much effort at following the “chisel scoring” recommended method we gave up to use brute force. The results explained the need, the geodes were mostly solid stone. Added disappointment that there was no verity of colour and the crystals (where they existed) were tiny. In include a photo of the opened geodes with the box in the background to show the difference between the “sale” photos and reality.
