Short, concise, to the point. Comes with several annotated examples showcasing various techniques and how they affect the final product. Corky does some of the best geodes going and this is a great resource for those trying to perfect their geodes.

This booklet was so helpful. I especially appreciated the inclusion at the end of a bunch of different t-shirts and the choices that went into making them.
