  • GREAT FOR GEOLOGY CLASSROOMS | Perfect for demonstrating the effect of vesicles on rock density, as well as for lesson in identification and classification of igneous rocks
  • GEOLOGIST SELECTED | Each specimen is selected and hand processed by an actual geologist, ensuring each sample exhibits defining features
  • LOCALLY PROCESSED | Our rock and mineral samples are sourced from a variety of locations around the world and are processed in Victor, NY
