Amazing Rocks Hands-On Science Kit
No labels to tell you which rocks were which. Nothing worked as they were suppose too either -- Big disappointment

A Better Rock Set
I bought both this set and the UV reactive rock set (Fluorescent Rocks), for my daughter's science themed birthday party. I'm happier with this set than I was with the other. All of the mini-projects included in this set work to some degree, which got the attention of our party guests and made it pretty popular.
A few small things I noted:
1. The instructions were apparently written by someone who speaks English as a second or third language, and they are not always very clear.
2. There is a project included with involves the rock mica, but there is not sample of mica included.
3. The magnetic rock is actually a very large, generic rock with a very, very small chunk of magnetite on the side. I'm sure this is just my individual sample and will not be a problem for everyone, but thought I should mention it anyhow. It made it hard to demonstrate the magnetic property of the rock to the kids in attendance.
Overall, we are happy with this purchase, and my kids are very pleased to add the rocks to their collections.
