Break open real geodes and find crystal treasures!
The geodes in this kit are millions of years old and were formed when prehistoric volcanoes erupted. Break them open and discover the incredible crystal treasure hidden inside. Breaking open real geodes is a classic science activity and fun for the entire family. The company offers two versions of the kit. The Ultimate Geode Kit includes 15 geodes from 3 different mines so that your rockhound can explore a variety of crystal formations which could include quartz, fluorite, calcite, or even amethyst! The Basic Geode Kit contains 6 geodes from one mine. Both kits include safety glasses and a full-color information guide. Geodes range in size from 1-1/2” – 2” in diameter. Geodes are an amazing natural phenomenon and a thrill to crack open for children of all ages! What a fun way to start a rock collection!

Christina's voice:
Discover with Dr.Cool he has all kind of neat project for kids on his website I just so happen to recieve Break open Real Geodes ( 6real Geodes at that) I didn't even have a clue what geodes were but this science kit came with some information  about geodes so i have learned alot. Which i found out that they are found all over the world but the largest concentration occure in deserts and volcanic ash beds. We took a hammer to each one. The age group on this kit is 6+ so we had daddy smash them open. Once they was cracked open you seen some really nice diamond like stuff in the center, as seen in the video and picture. My little girl loved it, we let her save it so now she has it in her purse. The kit came with safety glasses so we let out little girl where them because of course her saftey comes first.
