The Moon Rock Kit contains six hand samples of rocks and minerals which are similar to the rocks and minerals found on the moon.
It also comes with a Teacher's Guide which contains lessons about the formation of the moon and the subsequent evolution of our natural satellite.
The six samples include:
-Mineral: Olivine - Olivine is a common constituent in mafic intrusive and extrusive volcanic rocks.
-Mineral: Augite - Augite is a common mineral and the most common pyroxene associated with intrusive and extrusive volcanic rocks.
-Mineral: IImenite - Ilmenite is an iron oxide that occurs as an accessory mineral in mafic igneous intrusive and extrusive rocks.
-Rock: Anorthosite - Anorthosite is a medium- to course-grained mafic igneous intrusive rock that is composed of relatively few minerals.
-Rock: Gabbro - Gabbros are course-grained mafic igneous intrusive rocks and are the geochemical equivalent of basalts.
-Rock: Breccia - Breccias contain angular, randomly oriented clasts within a fine-grained matrix.
Detailed descriptions of each sample are included, plus chemical composition, color, luster, hardness, and cleavage.
