This collection of six large rocks and minerals is the best approximation, given the available data, of the kinds of geological samples one might find on the surface of Mars, the red planet!  Although no actual samples of rocks or minerals from Mars have ever been retrieved, we are well enough acquainted with the planet’s geological history to be able to say fairly definitively that these six are those which are most prevalent on Mars at this time.

The kit includes a sample of Sulfur, Hematite, Gypsum, Vesicular Basalt, Arenite (sandstone), and Breccia.  A comprehensive handbook is included as well, which provides a geological history of Mars, defines key terms, gives the specific gravity and hardness as well as a brief description for each rock and mineral.  An excellent study tool for those with an interest in geology, or a great gift to introduce a child to the geological world.

Features:

  • Six rocks and minerals likely to be found on Mars
  • Each sample is fairly large, measuring up to 2.5 inches in length
  • Comprehensive handbook with descriptions
  • Excellent as a gift or in the classroom
