This experiment kit teaches you the chemistry of crystals and the geological science behind rock formation with more than 18 hands-on projects and investigations. Grow different types of crystals, build 3D geometric models of common crystals, mold your own crystal geode, and conducts tests to determine a mineral’s chemical and physical properties. Excellent kit for the classroom or as a gift!

Learn about rocks and the minerals that form them. Dig deeper, and discover the fascinating crystal structures of these minerals. Much more than just a crystal growing kit, this experiment kit teaches you the chemistry of crystals and the geological science behind rock formation with more than 18 hands-on projects and investigations.

Grow three chemically different types of crystals that exhibit not only different colors, but also different crystal shapes. Build three-dimensional geometric models of common crystals shapes including octahedrons, tetrahedrons, and rhomboids. Mold your own crystal geode — a hollow rock with crystals growing inside!

Learn how to test and identify minerals with your very own collection of real specimen included in the kit. Conduct tests to determine a mineral’s chemical and physical properties such as color, luster, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and carbon, sulfur, or iron content.

Investigate the geologic rock cycle and learn how the three main categories of rock — igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic — are formed, altered, destroyed and formed again.

Full-color, 32-page experiment manual.

Customer Reviews


5 star rating  Much better than I expected!
Anthony Marks from USA, GA, Atlanta
I've seen other crystal kits that pretty much just showed you how to grow a crystal, versus actually explaining the geological concepts behind crystal formation. The manual for this kit is superb in that regard. Great for actually teaching science, versus being just a fun crystal-growing activity.
