Do you know a child who almost always carries home a pocketful of rocks when returning from the park? Does your son hoard gemstones in his room and oooh-and-aaah every time you pass a store with gemstones?
This is the kit for your child. I originally created our one-of-a-kind rock hound rock sifter for my own son. While vacationing many years ago, he fell in love with the Gem Mining tourist experience, and he has been a rock lover ever since. The sifter was originally created to mimic the gem mining experience at home. However, he quickly discovered many other rock-hounding uses for it, and now we dig in the yard and sift for local geological treasures and take it to the nearby creeks and streams to sift for fossils and shells.
Each Desert Treasure Edition includes:
(1) Handcrafted Poplar Sifter
(1) Dugway Geode
(1) Amethyst Point
(1) Fluorspar Octahedron “Diamond”
(1) Tumbled Amazonite
(1) Grape Agate Cluster
(2) Fluorspar Chips
(8) Identification Cards
You've probably noticed this isn't your standard rock collection. Instead, it is a specially crafted collection of premium specimens that will make a drool-worthy addition to anyone's rock collection or cabinet of curiosities.
This Adventure Box also makes an excellent addition to Montessori, Charlotte Mason, Reggio, or Waldorf home school geology, archaeology, or nature study programs.
