Crystals, Rocks & Minerals Experiment Kit

Regular price $54.95

Made by National Geographic, this comprehensive earth science experiment kit is much more than a crystal-growing kit. With this Crystals, Rocks, and Minerals kit, you can: learn the chemistry of crystals and the geological science behind rock formation; grow three chemically different types of crystals that exhibit different crystalline shapes and colors; build 3D geometric models of common crystal shapes; mold your own crystal geode; learn how to test and identify minerals with real specimens (included); conduct experiments to determine a mineral's chemical and physical properties such as color, luster, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and C/S/Fe content; and investigate the Rock Cycle to learn about how igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks are formed, destroyed and formed again.

Kit contains 39 pieces of equipment and minerals, and a colorful 32-page manual that guides you through over 16 experiments to do at home. Let the learning extend beyond our museum in the comfort of your own home with National Geographics' Crystals, Rocks and Minerals Chemistry Experiment Kit! The National Geographic Society is a scientific and educational nonprofit institution dedicated to supporting vital exploration, conservation, research and educational programs. Appropriate for ages 10+ and for use under adult supervision.
