    It’s a wonderful deal!
    I purchased this for myself, not for my child, lol. Don’t judge I’m still a kid at heart! A lot of people are complaining about the cost of the product compared to the size of the Birthstones. I can tell you now, this is a great deal! I’ve tried in every way possible to purchase these gems on their own, hoping I could get stones that are a little bigger. Well it can’t be done for under $50… $70 if I go with a merchant I’m familiar with. It’s been almost impossible to find stones of this quality let alone all in one set. One of mine was questionable considering it looked almost black. I’m a little unsure which stone it is but it lights up a really dark blue when placed on my phone flashlight so I am confident enough that it’s not an issue. Yes they’re small but they’re genuine semi-precious stones. The opal is beautiful. Someone mentioned that the pearl didn’t look real. Most pearls are misshapen or oblong. You can tell by washing then rubbing the stone across your teeth it will feel gritty, for lack of a better term (it’s a genuine way to tell) you can also put it under a fluorescent light, the pearl will react due to it’s natural properties. Rubies light up under UV lights. I’m a bit of a gem-aholic, lol. All in all It’s totally worth it and I would most definitely purchase again!

    Cleaver Writing On the Box A Little Different When Opened .
    I don’t appreciate after reading all the descriptive information about what is included in the Semi Precious Dig Kit ,only to have it conjured up questions that needed to be answered . Were you lead to believe you would find 15 various semi precious gems , along with a full color learning guide, with info about ALL the gems you find ? We’ll surprise , surprise the guide only covers 7 gems which means 8 are not covered in the guide ! I then looked closely at the front of the box & noticed they featured7 gems with more gems shown in the background. I now had several questions that needed to be answered before giving this dig kit to my grandson for Christmas .Just getting off the phone with National Geographic here are some answers .Yes, you get 15 Gems , however most of them are duplicates of the 7 you see featured on back of box . 3 Garnets 3 Amethyst 3 Citrine 3 Bl Topaz. 1 Opal. 1 Peridot 1 AquamarineFine Print ……Specimens May Vary from those Shown.All 15 Gems shown front of box are the 7 including all the duplicates! !The guide book is correct showing only the 7gems with a brief description, so you will not see 8 more different gems being describe .Paying $ 29.00 for the kit of mostly duplicateswas very disappointing to me . This will now be a decision you’ll have to make. The majority of the kids do like the experience that the 3 Gem dig kits provide along with buying a good Rock & Gem book for reference. The concept of having kids do a mini dig was genius. Between Mega Gemstones, Birthstones & Semi Precious Gems along with Mega Fossil Dig are all excellent learning tools . Just wait for a good SALE !Don’t Forget per past reviews…Soak the BrickEasier to extract the Gems !

    Love these
    I have bought these for my daughter for Christmas for the last 5 years. She loves them. I’ll continue to purchase these until this isn’t her thing anymore. Great value for the money.
