A geological expedition in the palm of your hand! Each of these fun excavation blocks contains one real mineral or fossil specimen. Each one is a surprise which of the specimens you will get.
Use the included chisel tool to dig in and reveal one of 12 different minerals or fossils: amethyst, aventurine, quartz, rose quartz, red jasper, pyrite, pisolite, snowflake obsidian, ammonoidea, scleractinia, petrified wood, or crinoids. Ideal for geology enthusiasts, these mini excavation kits are great for starting a new rock collection (or adding to an existing one!). Instructions are also included.
Includes one excavation block.
Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son, who saw the great need and demand for better science education materials — resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun.
