DESCRIPTION

Learn about rocks and minerals as you handle, test, and study the samples in this boxed kit. The Rocks and Minerals Sample Set includes 15 rock specimens and 15 mineral specimens, each measuring about one-inch in length.

This set has two boxes of specimens: 15 rocks and 15 minerals. While each specimen is numbered as a differentiation aid, no identification key is provided. Instead, this set is ideal for students working to identify the various specimens through their course work.

With the Rocks and Minerals Sample Set, you get the following 15 rock specimens: Obsidian, Granite, Basalt, Scoria, Rhyolite, Shale, Calcareous Tufa, Sandstone, Conglomerate, Limestone, Slate, Marble, Quartzite, Gneiss, and Schist.

With the Rocks and Minerals Sample Set, you get the following 15 mineral specimens: Fluorite, Microcline Feldspar, Hematite, Pyrite, Milky Quartz, Calcite, Biotite Mica, Muscovite Mica, Magnetite, Alabaster Gypsum, Satin Spar Gypsum, Selenite Gypsum, Talc, Halite, and Graphite.

Along with the rock and mineral specimens, this set also includes tools to test and study them, along with compartmented storage boxes. Use the included 1" acrylic magnifier to view details up close, the nail to test hardness, and the streak plate to test color.
