Learn about rocks and the minerals that form them. Dig deeper - and discover the fascinating crystal structures of these minerals. Much more than just a crystal growing kit, this experiment kit teaches the chemistry of crystals and the geological science behind rock formation, with more than 18 hands-on projects and investigations.

Grow 3 chemically different types of crystals exhibiting not only different colors, but also different crystal shapes. Build 3-dimensional geometric models of common crystals’ shapes including octahedrons, tetrahedrons, and rhomboids. Mold your own crystal geode - a hollow rock with crystals growing inside!

Learn how to test and identify minerals with your very own collection of real specimens included in the kit. Conduct tests to determine a mineral’s chemical and physical properties, such as color, luster, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and carbon, sulfur, or iron content. Investigate the geologic rock cycle and learn how the 3 main categories of rock - igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic - are formed, altered, destroyed, and formed again. Includes full-color 32-page experiment manual.
