This is my absolute favorite box! My fiance and I look forward to opening our Matter Box every month. The collections are extremely well curated, with pieces in each that range from fun and silly to truly unique and bizarre. Each box has at least one item that makes us go "Whoa!" Each piece also comes with a card that describes the item, and we've learned a ton!
We're about to get our 8th box this month, and it's been a joy to watch the curation and design grow and improve as time goes. We're delighted with this team and all they've done in producing this subscription box, and we both look forward to each new box!
10/10, would highly recommend this box to anyone who has an interest in the strange and unusual.
My partner and I were so looking forward to this subscription box. We love rocks and minerals and have built a decent collection over the years. We thought this would be a fun way to get exposed to pieces we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Instead, we were extremely disappointed.
For 39 dollars a month, we got boxes of rocks that clearly came from the discount bins at rock and mineral shows. All were low quality or damaged; this, across all of the boxes we received while subscribing. PIeces would frequently come in fragments, or with the tips of cut pieces like obelisks broken off. Plus, pieces were frequently labelled rare which were, in fact, perfectly ordinary and common pieces. On top of that, I messaged the seller to cancel the subscription, which they never did, and then had to go through Cratejoy again to cancel. All together, I think this box is designed to prey on people who don't know a ton about collecting and want to broaden their horizons, which is really, really unfortunate.
I would highly recommend you not subscribe to this service. Save your money and go to a local rock shop. You'll find better pieces for your money, and you can actually learn about the pieces you're getting.
