    4Great set for beginners
    By Teddy M.
    This set contains well-sized samples of rocks and minerals, sure to delight the budding geologist. The samples are numbered rather than labeled with the specimen's name, and the accompanying book identifies them. It arrived on time and as described.

    The only reason I didn't give this product five stars is that the manufacturer should really list the specimens in its product description; there are a lot of collections for sale out there, and collectors want to know what they are actually getting so they don't end up with duplicates.

    5Great for Homeschools
    By homeschool mom
    This is a great learning tool. From the mixed reviews, I was a little unsure of what I would be getting, but took the chance. I'm so glad I did! These are good size samples and they were all in perfect condition. Each is labeled to correspond with the enclosed info sheet. A wonderful hands on science experience that we will be using this year with our home school.

    4collection of rocks and minerals.
    By none
    This product was what I expected, smallish samples of the rocks but in a convenient format with a box to keep them in. Rocks well identified.
    Would recommend.
