Did you know that rocks have hidden talents? Some grow beautiful crystals, others attract metal, some can make sparks and one can actually float. These activities introduce you to four incredible rocks that are guaranteed to spark your imagination. This is a great introductory kit for aspiring geologists.
Activity Rocks is a kit that that comes with four different kinds of rocks that all act in their own ways. The gray sedimentary rock creates a crystal when you put it in a small bowl of vinegar with a penny next to it. The Tumbled Quartz rock creates a spark when you hit both rocks together. The Pumice is a light colored rock that has really small holes that were created by gas bubbles for a volcano eruption, this rock floats when you put it in a bowl of water. The last rock is a Lodestone rock that has a magnet mineral that attracts iron.
Recommended for children ages 6 and up.
- It's ok. Review by Debi
We got this as one of the gifts for our rock-hound sons 13th birthday. Three of the rocks worked just fine, but the magnetic rock doesn't work at all.
The tumbled quartz makes awesome sparks! He loved the "floating rock", and he is growing his crystals with the penny, which is included! (Posted on 5/6/13)
- Fun Review by Jamie
I bought the rock sets as party favors, and all of the kids loved them. They wanted bigger sparks though. Fun set of rocks. (Posted on 3/20/13)
