This laminated poster shows a whopping 162 specimens, carefully selected to include those most likely to be encountered by the student and collector. Over 20,000 photographs were reviewed to select ones that would best show a diversity of color, habit, luster and crystals. These magnficient minerals are presented by class: native elements, carbonate, sulfates, sulfides, halides, oxides, phosphate, organic and silicates. The silicates are such a large group that the bottom three rows are devoted to them. They are grouped by sub-class, such as nesosilicates, sorosilicates, etc. All of the popular gemstones are shown. All posters measure 24" X 36".
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 7 years of age.

"The fact that the mineral poster was already laminated was genius. My son, who has Aspergers, really likes to write notes, questions, and comments to himself all over things, which means I usually have to laminate posters and such at my own expense so he can use a dry erase marker on them. That he could start examining this poster right out of the box without having to wait for me to fix it for him made him so excited!! He's already covered it with scribbles about mineral origins, crystal structures, etc. "
Product review of Mineral Collection Poster

My grandson absolutely loves this poster! He received several of your mineral sets which he loves too but this poster to identify them is tops! He has chosen the spot on the wall for it to hang in his bedroom and now I will have to buy one for his brother! Your 'mineral' sets are 'awesome' as the boys say and has helped them develop firm interest and excitement of what they are, where they can be found etc and to handle them and actually feel the texture and appreciate the beauty has sparked interst in the environment around them. Thank you for offering these items!
My daughter loved this!

This is an excellent product! The poster is not thin and flimsy and it is laminated for long-term use. My 12-year-old daughter is fascinated with rocks and gems and loves to compare her personal samples to the poster. She also simply loves to look at the photos on the poster. The colors are beautiful and it makes it so much easier and injoyable for her to identify her rock specimines!
