I was doing a project with my Sunday school class at church and found these to be the best value. After reading some of the reviews I was hesitant. I wound up getting geodes from two different sites. About half of the geodes were not crystallized, and they were small. The other site I ordered from, which was slightly more money, had better quality of he crystals. I understand you can't see inside the geodes prior to packing them and the kids still had fun but they enjoyed it more when the crystals were found.
Pros: Age appropriateness, Assembly, Educational
Cons: quality

Out of the 12 geodes in the bag, only a couple actually had pretty crystals in them. One stone was just clay. Most of the geodes were pebble size, with one the size of a golf ball. The instructions say to hit the stone with a hammer to break them open, which made the pebble size ones crumble into teeny tiny pieces. Smashing stones was fun, but overall, it was pretty disappointing because you really don't have anything to show for your efforts.

I thought the kids would like these but several weren't even geodes and just broke into pieces of sandstone or whatever...the ones that were geodes weren't very impressive. The kids did not enjoy them. A couple were pretty inside.

Bought these to put in kids Christmas stockings.
Not sure if they contain crystal, but the kids will have fun busting them open to find out.

I would recommend that you buy a few extras of these geodes if you really need them for your classroom or personal use. You should plan on at least 2 or 3 per kid so you're sure you get a quality specimen for each person.

I wrapped these in colored paper and hide them and the kids found them in a scavenger hunt. They were VERY small. About the size of a small bouncy ball (quarter sized). I thought they'd be half dollar sized. ALL 24 (I ordered 2 packs) of mine had crystals. Not all were "pretty" crystals but the kids didn't mind it they were brown, white, or purple. A few geodes were solid crystals, but again the kids didn't mind they said it looked like they were filled with ice.
Pros: Educational, quality
Cons: size

Summer science class "LOVED" geodes. We bought your magnifying glasses also so children could get a good look at crystals. Bought double the amount I needed for 2nd attempts. This was good because had 2 totally unbreakable and a couple without crystallization once broken. Overall great...would purchase again.
Pros: Educational, Child's Favorite
