Not the DIY type? By purchasing a set of rocks and minerals, get going immediately! We have mineral sets that let you test for color streak and hardness, magnetism, carbonates, and more. Think studying rocks and minerals lacks action? Get smashing with a rock pick, safety goggles, and a set of geodes to reveal unique mineral deposits or beautiful quartz crystals! Every rock has a life story and is formed through natural processes–they aren’t just ‘born’ the way you see them now. Discover the rock cycle with the three types of rocks: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary. Learn how time, temperature, pressure, and erosion have worked to uniquely shape them all.
