This metamorphic rock set contains 10 hand selected metamorphic specimens and is ideal for geology students at all levels; school, college and university or simply for individual use or children who may show an interest in rocks The samples exhibit some textbook metamorphic features such as foliations, high pressure mineral inclusions and banding, thus the collection holds particular use as a rock identification aid. Each rock is housed within its own plastic compartment which correlates with a coloured photo data sheet on the inside of the lid, detailing the names of the items included and location that it was found. This is housed within a blue sturdy card box which keeps the samples safe and contained when not in use as well as making transporting or storing them much easier as the sets overall are designed not to take up too much space measuring only 30cm x 12cm and is 4cm deep. Samples within this particular rock set are:
1) Spotted Rock
2) Chiastolite Slate
3) Cordierite Hornfels
6) Garnet Mica Schist

Biotite muscovite granite specimens from St. Austell in Cornwall, UK of Permian age is a coarse grained igneous rock composed of quartz, plagioclase feldspar, biotite and muscovite. The rock is part of the St. Austell pluton which formed 280 million years ago. An off white colour with gold and black flecks of micas, the rock has a unique chemistry and resulted in the rich mineralisation of ores in the area. The samples are suitable for collectors and educational use to show granite variants, available in three sizes. Each piece will come supplied in a card tray with an information label.

Basalt igneous rock specimens from, Ireland, which formed during the Tertiary period approximately 60 million years ago. A dense, fine crystalline, dark coloured rock which forms at extrusive igneous bodies and contains olivine alongside with various pyroxene minerals such as augite along with plagioclase as well. The samples are available in 3 sizes and come supplied in a white card specimen tray with a label. Being so common and an important igneous rock, it is suitable for educational use as they are one of the introductory and staple rocks that students are often shown when entering earth sciences.

An off white coloured streak plate made form porcelain, they are used by field geologists and students as a means of performing streak tests on minerals. This test simply involves one, scratching the surface of the tile with a particular rock or mineral, the coloured streak left behind then assists the user in determining the mineral, or minerals within a rock sample.
The sedimentary rock texture card is made for earth science students, it displays numerous bites of information on how to determine an sedimentary rock specimen found in the field such as grain size, texture and an indication to the energy required to form the rock. The cards have been laminated, making them waterproof, small, the size of a bank card and an excellent to hand guide for students, amateurs and professionals.
Accretionary lapilli tuff is an igneous pyroclastic rock, these samples come from Longsleddle, Cumbria in the UK and forms when hot ash and debris is ejected from as volcano. Some of this material is held together by moisture and once heavy enough, falls into the ash below forming small ‘spots’ within the material, creating a speckled rock. The samples are suitable both for young and serious collectors as well as educational use and are supplied in various sizes with a card tray and label.

Garnet peridotite igneous rock specimens found in the Gusdal Olivine Pit, Åheim, Norway is an ultra mafic rock which contains high pressure and temperature minerals such as olivine and garnet crystals. Exhibiting a green colouraiton with striking red spots, these samples were pushed up to the earths crust during the Caledonian orogeny during the Ordovician and Devonian period over 400 million years ago. The specimens are dense as expected and are ideal for children and serious collectors because of the colourful appearance as well as for higher educational use to describe deep mantle material as well as orogenic processes. The hand samples are available in various sizes and come supplied in a card tray with an information label.

Amygdaloidal basalt is an igneous rock which is extrusive in nature, these specimens formed over 60 million years ago during the Tertiary period and come from Ireland. They are part of the Antrim lava group and exhibit a dark colouration with occurrences of amygdales containing quartz and calcite crystals. As a basalt they are somewhat dense, but lighter than pure samples due to the cavities within them which formed as a result of gaseous activity during their ejection. Over time, hydrothermal fluids pass through the rock and minerals form within the cavities, which gives the usually dark coloured rock a speckled appearance. These samples are available in various sizes and are suitable for higher educational use to detail the subtle differences between similar igneous rocks, they come supplied in a card tray with an information label.
