Worthless

My nephew received this for his birthday recently. We tried it today. On the box we got it said it had 8 real pieces of pyrite. My nephew kept chipping away at the sand brick, all we found was an occasional fleck of gold colored sand that would disintegrate when touched, no real pieces of pyrite like it stated or is pictured on the box. After about 30 minutes of chipping and nothing, it all went to the trash. Don't waste the money, I would have taken it back but since it was a gift we had no receipt, not even sure which store it was bought from.

ummmm NO!

Unless your little scientist likes to pound sand, breathe dust and work hard with no reward, I do not recommend this toy! The description says 11 pieces of pyrite, minerals and rocks, our block only had rocks, no pyrite at all. Its not false advertisement, but my kid didn't read between the lines on his gift, and worked really hard and got NO REWARD. Thank you Smithsonian for that important life lesson.
