Raw Hornblende Specimen
Single Sample, 1"

Hornblende is part of a group of minerals known as amphiboles. These minerals are chemically and structurally similar to pyroxenes, but include water in their atomic structure. Ideal for identification & classification exercises. Hornblende's perpendicular planes of cleavages make it an excellent tool for studying 2-plane, 90° cleavage.
While each specimen will vary slightly in shape, size and color, it will measure approximately 1" in length. Each is individually packaged, labeled & barcoded for easy identification and storage.

Selected & Processed by a Geologist.
Each and every specimen is selected and hand processed by an actual geologist, ensuring that each sample exhibits defining features. Rocks and minerals are sourced from a variety of locations around the world and are processed by hand in Victor, NY.
