The Rocks and Minerals collection is the ultimate starter kit for anyone with an interest in geology. In it you'll find 50 specimens, numbered for easy identification, accompanied by a detailed study guide.
The specimens are a mix of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, ores, gemstones and minerals that will help you to understand the complex and interesting field of geology.
