Teaching specimens of rocks, minerals, fossils
We offer teaching specimens of rocks and minerals in three basic sizes - hand specimens that fit in a 3.5" x 5.25" specimen tray, hand/display specimens, which also fit in that tray but are too thick to ship in a small flat rate box, and smaller student specimens that fit in the palm of your hand. We frequently carry display specimens, larger than hand specimens, that are useful in the classroom or in a collection.
Specimens are priced to be affordable for the classroom and for teachers we count like a baker. If you are a teacher, tell us!
We have fossils on occasion, when something interesting turns up. If you are looking for something you don't see here, ask us, as we collect for special orders and are constantly adding to our catalog.
