I tried both the Crystal of the Month and the Crystal Variety box to see which I liked best. The Crystal of the Month comes with an awesome informative card about the crystal, which was really what set it apart for me. I love learning and so getting to learn about the crystal each month is a huge plus for me. Additionally, the Crystal Variety Box that I received came with a wonderful variety but with many small pieces. Each type would have 3 or 4 small pieces or one big piece, so i definitely feel like the value is there but personally I already have lots of small pieces so the potential for so many more each month was a negative. Either box is a great choice! That's just my rationale for going Crystal of the Month over Variety.
Nice shipment, main crystal a bit smaller than my others but still received quality, looking forward to next shipment.
I like most of the crystals; however, this last box had a fossilized turd in it, which I don't know that I would classify as a "crystal". It also had a bag labeled "black kyanite" but it was a green stone and didn't look like black kyanite.
I think the large crystal each month is pretty cool - the smaller ones are usually neat also (minus the turd, that was kind of something I wouldn't have anticipated being in this type of box). I enjoy getting surprise crystals each month, but I'm not sure how much longer I'll continue the subscription after the last box I received. I may change my subscription to one of their cheaper boxes to see if I like that better.
I will be back with an update and to give my full review.
This was my first box and I am enjoying it very much. The Dragons Tooth Amethyst are beautiful. I Love them. Cannot wait until my next box.
Getting this box is always fun for my daughter and I. I really enjoy getting the little letters and explanations of the crystals. I gave 4 instead of 5 stars because the value of the box is sometimes a little questionable. Especially this last box. However, I appreciate the time and care each box is given and therefore, don't mind the cost. I'm almost sure the value evens out over the months. If I get crystals I already have, I give them to my daughter or as gifts to friends. In the end, I am very happy with getting this subscription.
Nice simple bonus crystals. Then for the main crystal...The dragon crystal stole show. Beautiful to open.
Overall I really enjoyed this box. I wanted to have a little "treat myself" surprise for Christmas, and that's what I got. I would continue if the price was a little lower, but I also have access to cheaper crystals given that I live in Los Angeles. For someone who doesn't live in a city but still needs their crystal fix, this box would be a great way to get crystals. I would also buy again for that fun surprise experience.
My wife has enjoyed this subscription for over a year now.
I got the first box and it was great but I never got my second box even though my tracking number said it was delivered. I tried to contact the company but never got a response. So this never happens again I had to cancel.
EDIT: I got it a week an a half after it was tracked as "Delivered". Very odd. But was satisfied buy items. However, was never contacted back by company to even try resolving shipping issue; had to call the post office for days to find my package.
Got my first box , and I truly enjoyed the variety ! Good size samples will continue this subscription!
Just beyond my budget at this time.
I'm still impatiently waiting for my first box.. really excited...unfortunately tracking has been crazy because it says s picked up on the 6th it's gonna arrive on the 8th..but then tracker says it leaves at 9am on the 7th and on the way and today I checked and it says it was picked up this am at 615am......so I'm starting to wonder if it's gonna just keep doing this..so I am very excited...in a impatient way ROL. ... Im not helping myself watching all the others opening their boxes on utube. Well n e way you guys Rock ...mailman must be petrified..
