This exciting kit allows you to experience the fun and discovery of geology on a small, home-friendly scale. However, what you'll find inside will transport you far away from home!  Included are a digging tool, a dusting brush, a magnifying lens, and one excavation block, which contains an extraterrestrial rock; this is a cosmic geological experience! The rock contained within is known as a 'tektite.' 

Every tektite chunk is formed from the debris produced by meteorite impacts! Although the debris is terrestrial, meaning that the materials are derived from our planet, this material can only be transformed into tektite through meteorite impact - due to the extreme conditions of meteor impact, terrestrial rocks and sediment are melted and/or vaporized, and thrown out to the atmosphere from the crater, where the molten material cools, forming tektites that fall back to Earth, often hundreds or thousands of miles from the impact site.

Turn your kitchen table into a dig site and uncover the geological aftermath of actual meteorite collisions! Makes an excellent stocking stuffer.

Features:

  • Allows you to excavate a real space rock known as a tektite
  • Tektites are formed as the heated-glass debris of metorite impacts
  • Includes digging tool, dusting brush, magnifying lens, and one excavation block
  • Educational and interactive geological fun
