Waste of Money in my review

This product claimed to be an introduction to specimens in science education, but I found it to be a complete waste of money. Through trial and error, I found that most of the specimens were cheap and low-quality, with very little educational value.

Save your money and look for a better introductory collection.

  • Comprehensive introduction to various aspects of geosciences.
  • Does not include advanced or specialized information for those already familiar with the subject matter.

Each of the samples is relatively small, but more than enough to understand the basic concepts of identifying different…
