One of the ways geodes form is by gas bubbles escaping from volcanic rock. Over millions of years, minerals seep in and crystals start to form inside. Our kit includes 20 geodes that you can crack open to reveal crystal formations that might include quartz, calcite, or even amethyst. Take a whack and see what you discover! Includes safety goggles and an activity booklet. A household hammer is required.


WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD— small parts not for children under 3 years.


For ages 6 and up. 7"W x 10"L x 2 1/2"D.

Not what I expected

By Angry Grandma

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Fun for Kids

Cons

  • Not Enough Variety
  • Poor customer support

Best Uses

    Comments about Ultimate Geode Kit:

    We used this kit with our 4 and 7 year old grandkids. They both loved breaking open the rocks, but had some trouble doing so. The four year old needed help hitting them hard enough to break them. The seven year old did better, but still had to work hard to do it. Once open, too many of the geodes looked "the same". We would have liked to have more visible differences. In all fairness, we've only opened about 14 of them, so maybe one of the remaining ones will at least be a different color.

        About the test

        National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Spencer Wells and team designed Geno 2.0 based on the new technologies and insights that emerged since the launch of the Genographic Project in 2005. Using an exclusive, custom-built genotyping chip, we test nearly 150,000 DNA markers that have been specifically selected to provide unprecedented ancestry-related information.

        •  Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds—even thousands—of years ago, with an unprecedented view of your ancestral journey.
        •  Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with specific regions of the world.
        •  Find out if you have Neanderthal or Denisovan ancestry.
        •  Have the opportunity to share your story and connect with other Genographic Project participants, helping us fill in the gaps in the human story.

        What's included in the Geno 2.0 DNA Test kit:

        The Geno 2.0 kit contains everything you need to begin the journey into your past, including painless cheek swabs and instructions for submitting your DNA samples (return postage required). Plus, we’ve designed the Geno 2.0 kit box to serve as a beautiful keepsake to store your results after you access them online.

        How your participation helps the Genographic Project:

        The Genographic Project is an ambitious attempt to help answer fundamental questions about where humankind originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Using the latest genetic and computational technologies to analyze historical patterns in DNA from participants around the world, our team of world-renowned scientists led by Dr. Spencer Wells, seeks to reveal our migratory history and to better understand the connections and differences that make up humankind.

        Sometimes what looks like a dull stone reveals an interior of delicate crystals. These formations are called geodes, and with the right mix of pressure, water, and chemicals, they can form inside volcanic or sedimentary rocks. Here, artisans in California cut thin slices from Brazilian geodes to expose the white and black quartz, lined with sparkling crystals. The outer “shell” is gold-plated to highlight the mineral’s natural beauty. Please allow for variations in these natural stones. 14-karat-gold-filled chain.

        Covering more than 300,000 square meters, the John Deere factory houses more than 2000 employees, 49 robotic welders, eight laser cutters and 14 kilometers of overhead track, all of which help stamp, press, cut and weld 60,000 tons of steel into the John Deere STS Combine—a harvesting mega-machine. When the combine has been assembled and is ready for painting, it undergoes a seven-hour process to receive the trademark John Deere green color. When John Deere decides to update its tractor design, the modification is first tested in the factory's state-of-the-art virtual reality lab to measure the potential impact to the assembly line process, saving both time and money. With its 21st century technology and human innovation, the John Deere mega factory shows the raw power behind one of agriculture's most vital machines.
