  • My eight year old niece started cracking open the rocks right away. She was so much absorbed in doing so that she wanted to continue even after darkness and time for dinner. As a grown up, I also enjoyed looking at the crystals inside the opened rocks. As another reviewer had written, even those rocks without crystals are fascinating.

      Rock Hound's Backpack Kit

      Why are rocks different colors? Why are there different kinds of rocks in different places? What are rocks made of? Strap on this sturdy backpack filled with everything you need to explore the surprising world of rocks and minerals! Until you have the right tools to examine them, the multitude of rock types, structures, and their properties can go unnoticed. The Rock Hound's Backpack Kit is the perfect, ready-to-go tool set to begin or advance your geologic adventure! 

      The Rock Hound's Backpack Kit comes with real tools for collecting, testing, and identifying rocks. You'll use a mineral test kit and hardness scale set to help identify rocks. You'll learn how to test for important properties of rocks and minerals, such as hardness, color streak, and more. You'll use the field guide to identify and classify all the interesting rocks and minerals you find. You'll examine the internal structures wearing your safety goggles and using a rock pick to break apart rocks and split open the included crack-open crystal geode. Finally, you'll record your findings in the nature notebook and show off your collections in the display box.

      Have fun cracking open more geodes, or take your rock collection a step further with the Deluxe Rock Tumbler Kit to smooth and polish your rocks!
