This is a great kit for the young rock hound where he/she can learn to test, classify and identify the three types of general rocks.
Learning is easy with the way each rock is numbered and then referenced from the identification chart, where you find the name and type of each rock. Great classroom source for your next geology lesson, or for use as a science fair project.
Instructions and Rock Identification Key: Provides instruction identifying common rocks.
Rock Specimens: The 15 specimens in this kit are examples of common rocks that have distinct physical characteristics.
Magnifying Lens: This is one of the most important tools for a petrogolist, because identifying rocks involves close observation.
Each rock is approximately 1inch (25mm) in diameter.
Igneous: Obsidian, Granite, Basalt, Scoria, Rhyolite
Sedimentary: Shale, Calcareous Tufa, Sandstone, Conglomerate, Limestone

Rock Science Kit
I received my kit in a timely fashion, however, half of the labels had fallen off. I had to glue them back on myself.
What a great product

I bought this for my 8 year old neice for Christmas. She is the budding geologist of the family.
Instantly she took off with it examining each rock and comparing them to all the other rock "stuff" she got this year. Great product for the money
