DESCRIPTION:


This deluxe classroom collection of 50 number-coded unmounted 1" specimens is ideal for all earth science studies. Specimens include examples of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, ores, and gemstones. Nine of the ten hardness levels from the Mohs scale of hardness are included (all but diamond, the hardest). A cardboard storage box with a compartmented tray and Rocks, Minerals and Gemstones: an Introductory Study Guide are included. Ages 12 & up.


The 16-page Rocks, Minerals and Gemstones: an Introductory Study Guide has basic introductory information on many, but not all, of the rock and mineral specimens in this collection.
