The Metallic Minerals Science Discovery Kit is a great way to introduce children into the fun and fascinating world of metallic minerals! Kids will learn how to test, classify, and identify different minerals with the tools and instruction guide included in this science kit. Metallic minerals contain metal elements in their chemical formula, which sets them apart from other minerals, and causes them have a metallic look. This means that these minerals bear unique color streaks and lustre qualities, which are two properties of minerals that young geologists will learn about while exploring this kit! They will use the streak plate to test the streak color of each mineral, the nail to test their hardness, and the magnifying glass will allow them to examine the surface details of each specimen! Some common metallic minerals include iron, copper, chalcopyrite and more.
This kit includes 9 different mineral specimens for students to observe and study. The provided tools will allow student to easily get started on your geological adventure.
