DESCRIPTION

Handle, test & study rock and mineral samples! The Rocks and Minerals Sample Set is the perfect rock collection! It includes 15 rock specimens and 15 mineral specimens, each measuring about one inch in length.

This rock collection set has two boxes of specimens: 15 rocks and 15 mineral samples. While specimens are numbered as a differentiation aid, no identification key is provided. Instead, this set is best for students working to identify the various rock and mineral samples through their course work.

With this set, you get the following rock and mineral samples.

Rocks

Obsidian, Granite, Basalt, Scoria, Rhyolite, Shale, Calcareous Tufa, Sandstone, Conglomerate, Limestone, Slate, Marble, Quartzite, Gneiss, and Schist.

Along with the rock and mineral specimens, this set also has tools to test, study, and conduct mineral identification. This mineral kit and rock set also includes 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.
