I have never been to Jacobs Geodes but I have purchased many buckets of them. Very satisfied with the quality of his geodes

I disagree. I had an awesome haul from Jacob's Geodes. Remember that not every outing is going to go well.

That's too bad. Do you have a link for the webpage on McRocks? I tried to find it, but all of the reviews were really positive for Jacob's.

Keokuk geodes are among the best but Jacobs are not.  Avoid.  See my review at McRocks.
