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 our moon! Over the course of the many manned missions to the moon, astronauts have collected and returned samples of lunar rocks to the earth. This kit features six specimen we know to be prevalent on the moon’s surface.
The kit includes a sample of Olivine, Augite, Ilmenite, Anorthosite, Gabbro, and Breccia. A comprehensive handbook is included as well, which provides a geological history of the moon, 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.
