    Much like the above collection, only with fewer specimens. The 35 or 24 rocks and minerals form a more abbreviated, but still adequate, range of materials for your study of geology or for identification/reference. Instead of buying one of those overpriced "book and skimpy rock collection" combo sets that pervade the market, settle on a good, basic book about rocks and rock-collecting, and use one of these sets as your samples. Unmount the specimens if you prefer - either way, you'll have a much larger and more complete collection for about the same price. Study Guide included.

    As a mom who spent hours upon hours rock hunting with my children, I would have loved this set! Containing 24 different specimens in four classifications (minerals, metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous), these rocks are not affixed to anything, allowing them to be handled, carefully examined and thoroughly explored! This set offers an excellent way to test rock knowledge - simply remove the rocks from their plastic container and ask your student to match up the specimens with the attached chart found in the lid. Kit includes the following: Quartz, Feldspar, Talc, Olivine, Pyrite, Calcite, Slate, Gneiss, Anthracite, Quartz, Marble, Schist, Conglomerate, Sandstone, Shale, Gypsum, Limestone, Dolomite, Granite, Rhyolite, Basalt, Pumice, Obsidian, and Gabbro. Rock samples measure ½"-3/4" in length. An excellent educational tool for the aspiring geologist in your family! ~Deanne

    This is a fun little starter set for older students who are interested in rocks and gemstones. The specimens measure ¼" to ½" and are set in a divided plastic tray (about 4 ½" x 5"). Each set offers a different variety of gemstones and names and pictures of some of them (not all of them) are found on the back of the box. Children can have fun researching and finding the names, taking them out of the tray and playing a game of trying to name them, or matching them to the pictures on the box.

    Amazonite, flint, desert rose, pyrite, apatite, amethyst, mookaite, quartz, rose quartz, and labradorite samples are all in this kit! But wait, there are activities too! Included are clear plastic boxes for your minerals to encase them onto a cardboard background showing where each can be found in nature. A booklet teaches you about your minerals: location;how to test hardness & density; how crystals are formed; minerals vs. rocks; looking for foreign particles and how to search for minerals. Then, it’s your turn to create your own model crystals from plaster. Everything you need is included: plaster, molds for 5 crystals, stir stick, measurers, and a vessel to mix in and pour from. Plaster powder should not be inhaled, so be extra careful with the dry plaster as you add water. When they are completely dry, glue the smooth sides together and you have just created an original “gem” you can paint! Not suitable for children under age 6. To be used under adult supervision.

    One of the coolest things I remember about visiting a local rock and gem museum was the room with the "glowing rocks." Under regular light, they look like any other rock, but turn on a UV light and they glow in beautiful colors pink, green, blue, purple. Now you can see this phenomenon with the Fluorescent Rocks Science Kit by GeoCentral.

    The kit contains 9 rocks (approx. 1/2" to 3/4" each), a guide, magnifier, streak plate and UV pen. Use this kit to learn why rocks glow, test their hardness, and more. ~ Donna
