    I was a bit worried after reading most of the reviews here but needing this for homeschool and not willing or able to spend a fortune on the bigger kits, I decided to give these a try. I am glad that I did. I ordered both the mineral and rock kits and found both kits perfect so much so that I submitted customer images to amazon to show the quality of what I received. The samples of the minerals were all a good size, most being approx 1 inch x 1 inch but a few being a little bit smaller. Based on the dimensions listed in the product description, I don’t see how anyone could expect more than that. None of my samples were missing and none of the stickers were off or missing either. I am very pleased with this product.

    This set is perfect for teaching my kids the 3 main types of rocks (Igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic). It fit right into their homeschool curriculum. Reading about rocks, their formation, and their characteristics is helped so much by being able to touch them. The magnifying glass is pretty much a waste of time a piece of junk, so I will ignore this. The set is perfect for learning these rocks, however, including 5 specimens of each type as follows, labeled with some basic information on each:

    Igneous:
    1. Obsidian
    2. Granite
    3. Basalt
    4. Scoria
    5. Rhyolite

    Sedimentary:
    6. Shale
    7. Calcareous tufa
    8. Sandstone
    9. Conglomerate
    10. Limestone

    Metamorphic:
    11. Slate
    12. Marble
    13. Quartzite
    14. Gneiss
    15. Shift

    I do wish that there was a bit more listed on where the rocks are from, their composition, and their characteristics than is included in the one page printout. However, the paper is nicely done, and the real good thing about this set is the set of 15 rocks.
