Learn about growing crystals and conduct 15 illuminating experiments with the Crystal Growing Kit!

This kit includes growing four different crystals to conduct 15 experiments. Hands-on education that teaches chemistry of crystals and geological science related to rock formation.

Grow three chemically-different types of crystals that exhibit not only different colors, but also different shapes. Build three-dimensional geometric models of common crystals shapes including octahedrons, tetrahedrons, and rhomboids. Mold your own crystal geode. This is a hollow rock with crystals growing inside!

Learn how to test and identify minerals with your very own collection of real specimens 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 rocks are formed, altered, destroyed and formed again.

The experiment of growing crystals is a rapid or slow process. This experiment gives you a chance to observe the affects of the crystal structure. Try to grow one giant crystal or many small crystals on the surface of a rock.
