A solid introduction to amateur geology- featuring Canada's coolest rocks!
This fascinating kit will help kids learn about Canada's seriously cool rocks! Thirteen rock samples and a mini-magnifier are included inside, along with a 32-page fullcolour book that gives the lowdown on the basic information every rockhound needs to know. The 13 rock samples included are: amethyst, brecciated jasper, beryl, smoky quartz, labradorite, quartz sandstone, dolomite, selenite, nephrite jade, amazonite, chalcopyrite, granite and tourmline.
As a special bonus: a double-sided, full-colour poster features a map of where you can find these earth-bound treasures on one side and a "Canada Rocks!" wall poster on the other.
Budding young geologists will have to agree - Canada's rocks ROCK!
