Review:I was a bit worried after reading most of the reviews here but needing this for homeschool and not willing or able to spend a fortune on the bigger kits, I decided to give these a try. I am glad that I did. I ordered both the mineral and rock kits and found both kits perfect so much so that I submitted customer images to amazon to show the quality of what I received. The samples of the minerals were all a good size, most being approx 1 inch x 1 inch but a few being a little bit smaller. Based on the dimensions listed in the product description, I don't see how anyone could expect more than that. None of my samples were missing and none of the stickers were off or missing either. I am very pleased with this product. Read more

Review:We homeschool our 13 year-old and needed a kit for the mineral id lab in Earth Science. JC looooved this lab! There was enough variety in this kit that he even ended up being able to test for minerals that glowed in UV light, minerals that reacted to acid, and so forth. This exceeded my expectations for such a small kit. Read more

Review:A good selection of minerals. It was a struggle for this novice to match the 15 to their descriptions and when I did I wondered if I had determined hardness correctly. The box is small and the specimens tiny. I believe my photos show that the samples shown on the box are larger than the ones supplied. Read more

Review:I bought a couple of these kits for my Science Club students to use in their mineralogy study. The mineral specimens were approximately 1 inch in length, and were in good condition upon arrival. They are packed in open cells and jostle around a bit in transit, but they have numbered stickers on them to identify each mineral, so you can figure out which one is which and reposition them. The stickers do not tend to stick very well, and I replaced a couple of them. I like the fact that these minerals are in their natural state and not polished or cut. Instructions come with the kit, and there is a chart which identifies the hardness and streak color of each mineral. The kit also contains a scratch plate, nail, and plastic magnifying glass. I added other items from a Rock Mineral Test Kit (also available on Amazon at a reasonable price), and had a wonderful little mineral identification/test project for my students. Read more

Review:I was reluctant to purchase this because it seemed like a high cost for what you get but we were doing a homeschool unit study on rocks and minerals and this just seemed necessary for my 6 and 8 year olds to really understand Mohs hardness scale. I wasn't wrong. Its a cheap little basic kit but without it my kids wouldnt be asking to scratch test rocks they find in the yard 2 months after our original study. Read more

Review:I bought this kit for my son who has suddenly taken an interest in rocks, minerals, and gem stones. He'd bought a different kit previously and, while he liked it, he found that he had a hard time really determining which rocks he had in his kit because they didn't seem to match the pictures on the back of the box. And then, we found this kit and the big plus is that it takes the mystery out of figuring out which rocks you have because each rock comes numbered and corresponds to one of the numbers in the identification guide. He loves it! This kit came with 15 rock specimens, a magnifying glass, and an identification guide. The identification guide is pretty basic but does provide a good start for someone just getting into rock collecting. My son especially liked the page of the guide that shows the names of the rocks and some specific information about each one. The box that the rocks come in is a good one for keeping them in for storage - of course my son had to have a special "rock sorting box" but this one would suffice if you don't have a picky rock collector. We are very pleased with this product and it's made our little rock collector a happy one! Read more

Review:I homeschool a 7th grader and we are doing Geology class this year. The instructions are lacking as to how to test the hardness of each mineral with only a nail and a penny? How can that determine individual hardness scales? Needs products included for the entire 1-10 hardness scale. (Obviously not a diamond for Hardness Scale 10) but the rest could be included! Or at least tell us what products represent each level on the hardness scale to obtain. I was disappointed. Read more

Review:bought these for a rocks class I taught. Some of the rocks are smaller than what is in the picture on the front, but i don't think it detracts from the total package at all. The kids loved them!! This is a great resource to have and I would definitely buy this again. One note though: Don't expect the magnifying class it comes with to actually do anything. It's really worthless as a magnifying glass. This didn't bother me as I brought my own to class anyway. It does however, have a nice little ceramic plate to test streak color on, along with a steel nail. Additionally, I made my own little Moh's hardness testing kit to accompany this box that easily fit inside it. I went to the dollar store and purchased some glass decorative marbles (one side is flat) and a small bag of magnets. All in all, inside the plastic bag that comes with this kit, I was able to put it's own ceramic plate, the nail and added a penny, a marble, and a paper clip (just to have one more magnetic item for fun.) It all fit inside the bag in this box and was a great success. Fabulous resource! Read more

Review:We were mainly happy with the kit, and it contents. We were unhappy that 3 of the minerals were not labeled, making it difficult to use it for the school assignment my son had. Also, one rock had a "6" or "9" on it but we could tell which it was, as there was no line drawn to show which it was. Read more

Review:I bought this to use at my lapidary club open day. We wanted an activity that would show how we determine what a rock is and this was perfect. Only criticism I have is that one rock was missing and another was duplicated in its place. It didn't stop us using it the way we wanted as we were limiting the number of rocks used anyway. I used the information on the accompanying chart to make-up a checklist for participants who seemed to find the information fun. It also got the tick of approval from some of our long time members.

Review:Price is way too high. Considering what is, I would say $9.99 would be the highest price. The box is much smaller than what the picture suggests. It's about 5x7 inches. I think taking the kids out to dirt road to collect rocks would be a better experience. Read more

Review:I ordered the Mineral Science Kit, but the identification key included in the package was for the Rock Science Kit. This makes the mineral samples very difficult to identify. The samples were also jumbled and missing their labels. Read more

Review:The specimens are all there from what I can tell but it was missing the magnifying viewer, nail, and streak plate. It also came with the rock guide rather than the mineral guide so we don’t know the names of any of the specimens. Very disappointed Read more
