This title comes with 19 easy-to-do experiments and 400 exciting pictures. It is an exploration of gems, crystals, fossils and stones for the young geologist.

It features 400 specialist photographs and detailed illustrations of rocks, minerals and the land they have shaped. It includes expert tips on starting your very own rock collection. Every second of every day, deep inside the Earth vast rocks, precious metals and beautiful crystals are being formed. This book explains exactly what rocks and minerals are, how they have affected the landscape, why they come in such an array of varieties, and how you can recognize them.
