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 you the chemistry of crystals and the geological science behind rock formation with more than 18 hands-on projects and investigations.
Grow three chemically different types of crystals that exhibit not only different colors, but also different crystal shapes. Build three-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 specimen 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 three main categories of rock — igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic — are formed, altered, destroyed and formed again.
Full-color, 32-page experiment manual. Ages 8 and up.
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 8 years of age.
Product review of Crystals, Rocks & Minerals
Posted 12/21/2010 by Sandra VanWagenen
This was a gift for my granddaughter. After opening the items, she wanted to get started with it, but since she lives 80 miles from here, she decided to wait until she got home to try it out. So I am unable to say how the product worked for her. She has asked for it and seemed very pleased with it, just sorry that she couldn't get started on it.
