Learn about rocks and the minerals that form them. Dig deeper, and discover the fascinating crystal structures of these minerals. Much more than just a crystal growing kit, this experiment kit teaches you the chemistry of crystals and the geologic science behind rock formation with more than 18 hands-on projects and investigations.

Grow three chemically different types of crystals that exhibit not only different colors but also different crystal shapes. Build three-dimensional geometric models of common crystal shapes, including octahedrons, tetrahedrons, and rhomboids. Mold your own crystal geode—a hollow rock with crystals growing inside.

Learn how to test and identify minerals with your very own collection of real specimens included in the kit. Conduct tests to determine a mineral’s chemical and physical properties such as color, luster, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and carbon, sulfur, or iron content.

Investigate the geologic rock cycle, and learn how the three main categories of rock—igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic—are formed, altered, destroyed, and formed again.

Full-color, 32-page experiment manual.

National Geographic is home to a thoughtful selection of educational kids toys, games, activity kits, books, and more that engage young minds and foster a lifetime of discovery through fun and hands-on learning. The leading concept in 21st-century education is STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It’s a cross-disciplinary approach to learning that entrepreneurs and educators believe is key to a healthy innovation economy.

We’re proud to have been supporters of STEM learning since long before the acronym was invented. Anyone who has watched a child open a present only to set the gift aside and play with the box knows that kids have an innate curiosity and desire to explore and understand their world. National Geographic explorers never lose that curiosity, and it has lead to some of the most remarkable discoveries in the last 125 years.
