I read the comments and would kindly disagree. I enjoyed each stone that came in the box. I buy stones from a local shop and the stones in this box can compare to the quality of the local shops. The handmade bag was a great touch. When buying this box, you are buying it for the different selection, the surprise, and the love of stones and crystals. Yes you can easily buy these at the shops like some others have mentioned, but then that takes away from the mistique and selection that this box comes with. I really enjoyed the box and would order again.
