Just what I needed! Review by
I was so grateful to get this Mineral kit in time for our Classical Conversations community days. The minerals were labeled well, and the information included with the box gave me all I needed to finish up preparations. Thank you! I appreciate the reasonable price as well.
Great value! Review by
This kit has nicely sized samples, comparable to a more expensive kit I purchased from another company. When I opened the package, some of them had become mixed up during shipping, but none of the numbers had come off, so they were easily put back in order. I do think I'll do as another review suggested and place a dot of super glue over the numbers to make sure they are secure. These will be handled by lots of little hands, and I don't want them getting mixed up.
In all, it is a nice product at a good price. I'm very pleased.
Excellent Kit! Review by
The mineral specimens in this kit are excellent - big enough for kids to clearly see the characteristics necessary to identify them. I teach the Geology Merit Badge for Boy Scouts, and I've used these kits at two different group events for this merit badge. The scouts love them! Good quality specimens - I highly recommend them!
Mineral studies Review by
I purchased this kit for ninth grade mineral studies for our homeschool. The price is reasonable and the kit is just as pictured. I was pleasantly surprised by the size and weight of the samples. This kit is a much better quality than similar kits I have found for sale in museum gift shops.
very cool Review by
we just received this mineral kit and my girls love it! we like the numbers on the specimens so we can check the chart to see what they are called. we like the testing materials that come with it like the tile and nail. it worked out well for our lab experiment for 9th grade homeschool science.
