Crystal Growing Reviews
Ordering and delivery process was impeccableBy: Kathleen on 21 June 2020 - Verified CustomerWhile I cannot comment on the product itself, I can say that the ordering and delivery process was impeccable. My grandchildren who live in another state were the recipiants and I havent heard if they have started the crystal growing yet. They may be waiting until the next school holidays to have a go. They were very excited to receive a parcel in the mail addressed to them.
