This is a fun little starter set for older students who are interested in rocks and gemstones. The specimens measure ¼" to ½" and are set in a divided plastic tray (about 4 ½" x 5"). Each set offers a different variety of gemstones and names and pictures of some of them (not all of them) are found on the back of the box. Children can have fun researching and finding the names, taking them out of the tray and playing a game of trying to name them, or matching them to the pictures on the box.
Our Gemstone Collection Box is a great introduction to the mineral kingdom at a great value! This beautiful collection of polished gemstones is a must for the beginner crystal collector. Twenty natural, polished crystals may be viewed and stored right in the box.
