Isn't it fun to break open geodes and find the beautiful crystals growing inside. But it is very disappointing when you break them open and find solid rock with very few crystals. Good News! The company that puts together these kits guarantees that you will find crystals in their geodes collected from mines around the world.(Sorry, No Amethyst crystals in these.) This science kit is an adventure ready to be discovered! Geodes were formed millions of years ago when prehistoric volcanoes erupted and gas bubbles were trapped in the lava. The result is a science phenomenon of incredible crystal caverns within each exciting geode. When kids gently hit one of the geodes with a hammer, it will break open to reveal a hidden mineral treasure. Kit Includes 1 pair of safety goggles, 4 geodes (2 each of 2 different kinds). Geodes range in size from 3cm - 5.1cm , 1 display stand, 1 Activity Book with 10 Puzzles, 1 Full Colour Information Guide. This Starter Science Kit is winner of multiple awards: Creative Child Magazine, Product of the Year Award 2011. Dr Toy, 100 Best Children's Products, Winner Informal Education Products, Product of the Year, 2011-2012 Recommended for ages 6 and up.
