Product Description:

This reference card is great for students learning about the appearance of various rocks and minerals. Attached to a 4" x 6" laminated card are samples of 20 common rocks found in the United States: Quartz, Amazon Stone, Epidote, Andesite, Flourite, Obsidian, Orthoclase, Talc, Jasper, Ulexite, Pyrite, Migmatite, Opal, Chrysocolla, Sulfur, Coal, Dolomite, Magnetite, Calcite, and Terra Cotta. Each sample is about .5" wide. The back of the card has a very brief explanation about rock classification. ~ Rachel

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!

My daughter has recently become interested in rocks and I thought this would be a fun gift before investing in a full science classroom set for experiments.
