This isn't your normal set of pet rocks!

Watch TV using a rock that transmits real images with its natural fiber optics. See a rock actually float on water with the Buoyant Rock.

Rub together the alien-like flash rocks and watch as they glow from the inside. Or, place the growing crystal in a pool of vinegar and watch as smaller crystals sprout all over its surface.

Open the Cabinet of Curiosities Peculiar Minerals set and amaze yourself with geology.

    Cool toy!
    Posted 12/11/2013 by Auntie Lee

    This was a gift for a 10 year old and he was delighted with it. He was fascinated with each of the 4 minerals in this set and started playing with them immediately. His favorite is the TV rock which transmits images, but he also really enjoys making the flash rocks glow, is fascinated with the buoyant rock and likes to check the progess of the crystals growing from the rock that he put in a bowl of vinegar. He enjoys the unique characteristics of these rocks and it has stirred his interest and curiosity in geology and science. I am really pleased to find a fascinating toy for a 10 year old and his parents were happy to see him take a break from all his electronic games to play with something natural. The set of rocks come in a very nice gift box that is made to look like a cabinet which is a clever way of housing this "Cabinet of Curiosities".
