1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying 18 Dec 2012
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, so the price is reasonably cheap, but the box is tiny and filled mainly with tiny bits of stones. There are about 5 acceptably sized stones but even these aren't great quality. I suppose you get what you pay for, but would not have bothered if I'd seen this in a shop, don't waste your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for the price. 17 Jun 2013
Suprisingly varied collection of well polished stones. Just a stocking filler for a young enthusiast but definitely worthwhile, will be using them again.

This is an ideal introduction to the world of gemstone collecting and education into our natural world of gems and minerals. For a small cost they can be added to and will encourage children or adults to learn more about our world, from their geographical source to their origins and type....good service and excellant value.

my 9 year old son was thrilled with this, he loves fossils and gemstones and really enjoyed looking at all of the stones, please note that there are some very small pieces so would not be suitable for younger children

4.0 out of 5 stars Little treasure chest 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I accidentally ordered two of these, and I'm glad I did - the best bits from both add up to one very nice boxfull. Each one as they came would not have been very special. That said, you can't really fault the price.

Gobbledygook alert - includes instructions on how to wash your stones to avoid catching sickness or negative energy from them. Good luck!

4.0 out of 5 stars Take care it's very small! 17 Jan 2013

I had taken note of the dimensions of the box but I was still surprised by how small it was. Having said that it was also very reasonably priced and an ideal stocking filler for my son (6) who is currently quite fascinated by rocks and minerals. He was very pleased to have it in his collection and he can always get something bigger if the interest continues.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good gift 15 Feb 2014

I like this item a lot - the only thing I would point out is the size of the box of gems! It is a lot smaller than you would think BUT this doesn't take away from how great the selection is. Arrived on time, packaged well.

Nice little stocking filler. Reasonable price for a fair selection of gems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value
This was a good way to start a collection of gemstones for a child. Not expensive and includes a guide on the back to identify some of the stones. Also delivery was fast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some beautiful stones.
I was a little diss appointed by the size of these stones and the way in which they were presented. Although for the price there was a good variety.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good sample for children
I have bought better sets cheaper elsewhere in the past, but this was still a very good set for its price. A great little gift for a child interested in geology or crystals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described
For the price this box of stones is very good value. My daughter loves little bits & bobs and stones, so this covers both.
