Most Helpful Customer Reviews

While it was useful to teach the kids about Amber and where it comes from, the kit was somewhat disappointing. Some of the pieces of Amber were quite small, very thin and jagged, nearly impossibly to polish, . On top of that, out of all of the Amber included in this kit, not one of them had anything inside of it. Also I think the scorpion keychain is just Amber colored resin, although the kit claims that it is Amber. While I don't regret the purchase because of the informative booklet inside and the fact that my children were able to learn from it, I do think that the price for this product is a bit high. I think it would be totally worth it if someone gets lucky and gets some good chunks of Amber with something inside of them.

And just a note, I tried putting a few pieces of the Amber in my rock tumbler to further polish them, and they didn't survive. So if you wish to save your Amber pieces, avoid putting them in a rock tumbler!
My 10 year old got this kit and said it was the best present ever. One of the pieces had 2 ants in it. We have a microscope and we were able to see one was completely intact and the other was mostly but missing a few legs. He is still working on the other pieces. Very fun kit for the Jurassic Park fan.
I got this as a gift for my daughter for Christmas and she was excited!!! She love science and exploration. I would recommend this to anyone who has a young scientist at home.
