Rocks & Minerals for Geology Lessons

Sets and samples of rocks and minerals give students a "rocking" hands-on experience. Help identify a mineral by determining its hardness and performing a streak test. Everyone loves to pull apart the layers from a specimen of mica. Don't be fooled by the seemingly normal Sticky Stones; they're magnetic! Common fluorescent minerals, sensitive to long-wave ultraviolet (UVA) light, can be made to fluoresce using any of the fluorescent "black lights" we carry.
