What are minerals? How are they formed? Students identify a variety of common and useful minerals based on their physical properties, including color, luster, hardness, cleavage, and streak. They then measure the specific gravity of the minerals to aid in the identification process. Finally, students grow their own beautiful mineral crystals to understand how and why crystals form beneath the Earth's surface. Kit includes 28 impressive mineral specimens, student worksheets, and all other materials for 28 students working in pairs.
