I purchased the set for my 11 year old daughter. The garnets in one of the samples was most impressive. No the samples are not huge but for a child starting a collection, this is the way to go. It gives them a chance to identify the minerals or rocks and to label them on their own. She enjoyed this the most and she has shown off her rocks to family and friends. The case is not for displaying the minerals but as a geology major in college, I can say the prices are reasonable for the products. I know some of the samples alone would cost more then $16 if the samples were larger then they are. The sizes are around 1 inch for each peice in the sample my daughter recieved.
