As described and even better! I was looking for decorative matches for my alter and candles. Earthy things are my vibration so I resonated with these matches/Mushroom box immediately. These are perfect. The box is big and the matches are long. However I enjoy the box so much that I decided not to light the matches - but purchased multiples so that I use one box and the other is just decoration! Matches work great. I get compliments on them. I love them so much that I have purchased the other options as well (Zen cats and now the Owls!!) They are worth it!
