    What People Are Saying

    Great collection for basic geology study
  • Esther

  • I bought this set to teach my middle and upper elementary homeschoolers our R.E.A.L. Earth Science unit on rocks and minerals and to fill in the gaps of our home schoolroom rock collection. It has all the specimens I need to cover basic topics, and the labels and key make it easy to combine this set with other curricula. My kids are really enamored with it and are spending a lot of time exploring the specimens.
    First rock collection

  • I have wanted to do this all my life. And after 61 years I am so glad to have finally started my rock collection. Woo-Hoo!
    more advanced type of kit

  • The kit contains well marked samples with a great assortment however, it is not a great learning kit for people who are starting out learning about rocks because the instruction booklet is advanced. Was hoping to open it and let the kids explore but we needed to do more research to make it interesting beyond the initial 10 minutes. Definitely a good kit just a caution for beginners so it doesn't become a box of rocks that sits in the basement.

      Rocks & Minerals Earth Science Collection, 75 specimens

      This premium Earth Science collection comes with 75 number-coded, unmounted 3/4"-1" specimens, making it a valuable tool for demonstrating physical properties, the scale of hardness, and the major rock-forming minerals.

      Nine of the ten hardness levels from the Mohs scale are included (all but diamond). A sturdy compartmented storage box, streak plate, magnet, magnifier, and Rocks, Minerals and Gemstones: an Introductory Study Guide are included.

      The 16-page Rocks, Minerals and Gemstones: an Introductory Study Guide has basic introductory information on many, but not all, of the rock and mineral specimens in this collection. It is organized into sections on mineral properties, metallic minerals, nonmetallic minerals, rock forming minerals, igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks, and gemstones. It also has charts on the rock cycle and on classification of the three types of rocks.

      Note: This kit contains galena, a source of lead. Skin contact with galena is not dangerous; however, to avoid potential digestion, always wash hands after handling.
