Raw Breccia Specimen
Set of 12 Samples, 1"

The large, angular clasts in breccia make it possible to confidently ascertain the depositional history of the rock. The nature of these grains imply that they have not undergone much alteration, and have not traveled far from their source. Ideal for teaching students about rounding and sorting, as well as for identification & classification exercises. This contrasts well with conglomerate, a very similar rock with clasts that have traveled a long ways from their provenance.
While each specimen will vary slightly in shape, size and color, it will measure approximately 1" in length. Each is individually packaged, labeled & barcoded for easy identification and storage.

Selected & Processed by a Geologist.
Each and every specimen is selected and hand processed by an actual geologist, ensuring that each sample exhibits defining features. Rocks and minerals are sourced from a variety of locations around the world and are processed by hand in Victor, NY.
