Product Description:

Much like the above collection, only with fewer specimens. The 35 or 24 rocks and minerals form a more abbreviated, but still adequate, range of materials for your study of geology or for identification/reference. Instead of buying one of those overpriced "book and skimpy rock collection" combo sets that pervade the market, settle on a good, basic book about rocks and rock-collecting, and use one of these sets as your samples. Unmount the specimens if you prefer - either way, you'll have a much larger and more complete collection for about the same price. Study Guide included.

Rocks in Basic set measure ½"-¾" while those in the Reference collection are slightly larger at ¾"-1". Study Guide included.

Category Description for Rock Collections:

We have several rock-hounds here - as evidenced by the boxes of rocks that haunt the dark recesses under beds and in closets, when they're not strewn all over the floor! Of course, our "good" rock collections don't suffer the same fate. These have been used countless times in our homeschool, especially in our study of Earth Science. Kept in the schoolroom, the children are free to use them to identify other rocks or just to peruse for sheer delight. I guess you can tell that I am rather fond of rocks myself. The combinations and varieties that God has embedded in the Earth are astounding and beautiful. We had to "dig" a little for the information to stock these, but it was totally worth the effort!

Does this kit come with a booklet?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes, my set included Rocks and Minerals A Study Guide, by American Educational Products LLC.
Does this kit contain "samples of minerals, igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks and metamorphic rocks?" I need something like this for my Geology class but it has to have everything listed in the quotation marks.
A shopper on Sep 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It contains a sample of everything in the picture, but the issue we had was that most items came dislodged from there places during shipping.
How big are the rocks?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Some are the size of a quarter or half dollar. Not enormous, but big enough to handle and invetogate for their properties.

Great basic starter set!
My 8-year old grandson who is already planning to become a geologist is fascinated with this collection. All of my grandchildren have studied these rocks together. So glad to have given him his first official collection.

Rock Collection
Bought the rock collection for my 8 year old grandson. He has become quite the rock and fossil collector. This purchase was educational as it helps him identify the types of rocks he finds.
