    Comments about Thames & Kosmos Mineral Discovery Science Kit:

    This was a great choice for my sons Christmas. When opening the box he was amazed by the colorful rocks, beautiful crystals and jewels. There was 10 material specimens and other materials he could use to conduct experiments. He was able to learn how to identify and distinguish material specimens by testing their properties such as density, streak color, hardness, and translucency. There's also a booklet that tells how and where crystals and mineral are formed. It also tells your child when and where to search for their own minerals in nature to grow their own collection. It was I must have kit and my son really enjoyed it.
