I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  This is one of the most difficult fun projects I have encountered this year.  You do get for real geodes (rocks) that are impossible to just lightly tap open.  Picture me sitting at the table with a hammer and flat head screw driver, wearing my kids goggles ( comes in the pack)   And tapping the geode very lightly for about 5 minutes with no results.  My children became bored and I got really frustrated.  Next approach place geode in a sock as instructed and hit it mildly hard with a hammer.  Now the sock rips a huge hole and my table gets four wonderful dents into my cherry wood, and still it does not crack open.  Next I am hitting hard enough to do major damage and sound like a murder is going down, and it finally cracks open.  Needless to say we have one very nice geode and 3 that will never be opened. Project fail, table damage and total aggravation. A child can not open these at all.  I expected them to be precut for the kids to tap and open.  The concept is great and the booklet is a few pages of simple activity . I would save money and go outside and keep trying to hit boulders for the same effect free of charge and equally as fun.  
 Lastly these do not break evenly, they will turn into shards and dust and make a huge mess, even with the sock.
