    Yes hello, I am collecting these for my grandchildren and they are loving them, we are still on our first show case, we are up to number 17 “AZURITE” But I have a complaint as this one (17) didnt come with its own little plastic box and foam that it sits in, in the case, I have been back to where I buy the Rocks from and have been told that No 17 have all come like that so what do I do now ?? can you help please.

    Yes. Hi Trish I have problems to as they have delayed my deliveries so I am a bit behind but I have caught up. I believe you should go on the website and ring them up and ask if they can send a box. That’s a little disappointing because they are precious little things those rocks. If not I can’t help. I suggest putting tissue paper in the case if they refuse to send a box. Let me know what happens or if you need another helping hand. Thanks, glad to be of help.

    why is my comment of two days ago still awaiting “moderation”

      It does that. I was having login problems so i have to “approve” your comment. Sorry about that. I can’t control it. Anyway. Answering your question; I don’t know what national geographic is doing but it is very disappointing. My issue 19 did not come with a box. As for the samples none look like the front. The front are precious obviously collectors items from collectors but I say who’s to complain. I understand where you’re coming from but I can’t help with dispatch issues or looks. I’m sorry about that. It’s better than nothing but as I always suggest, ring them. Complain. I always ring them about cases and boxes and stuff. I have to ring them for the 10th time because at the moment it’s rubbish. I hope I helped. Bye and thanks for visiting my blog!

    thanks for responding to my comment . I’m disappointed that it was not explained by national geographic that this would be the case .as the collection is 80 strong it adds up to a considerable amount of money . perhaps you would be able to provide me with relevant phone number so i can pursue this with them

    thanks for responding to my comment . perhaps you would be able to email me the contact phone number for them
