Product Details

Space Rocks Excavation Kit w/Tools
by GeoCentral

Rocks and minerals are constantly falling from the sky above us. Fortunately, most of them are not much bigger than the size of tiny dust particles, and have to be seen with a microscope. When a larger rock, like a meteor or meteorite, impacts with the surface of our planet, new types of rocks are created or discovered.

Many of the rocks and minerals that we find here on Earth, we can also find in the meteorites, asteroids and other rocks in outer space. Through the exploration of the Moon and of Mars, scientists and geologists around the world have managed to identify many different types of rocks and minerals which you can also find here on Earth.

The Space Rocks Excavation kit includes a five different rocks which can be either found both on Earth and in space, or are formed when an asteroid, meteor, or meteorite crashes down on earth. Each sample is hidden within a uniquely painted and designed space-themed block of plaster, ready for excavation using the included digging tool and brush. Once you've freed them from their rocky prison, use the magnifying glass to examine some of their finer details, and the learning guide to identify which rock you've found. A small velvet pouch is also included, for storage of your new space rocks.
