Product Overview

Heres an unusually handsome activity box that introduces boys and girls to the engrossing world of crystals and gemstones. Open the lid to reveal a six-compartment display case, each compartment holding an assortment of polished gemstones. Kids will learn how to sort and identify each of the stones in their collection. Beneath the display case, theyll find the Little Book of Crystals and Gemstones, tweezers for examining stones, and a miniature geode--a stone with tiny crystals that are naturally embedded on its surface. The book instructs budding gemologists on--

  • How to identify crystals and gemstones
  • How stones are cut and polished
  • Properties of precious gems--diamond, ruby, emerald, and sapphire
  • Jewelry stones--jade, pearl, turquoise, lapis lazuli
  • Building a crystal collection . . . and much more

    A bonus item in The Little Box of Crystals and Gems is a kit containing ingredients that boys and girls can used to make their own diamond-like crystals.
