Bowen's reaction series is a hallmark of igneous mineralogy. The series defines a qualitative relationship between different minerals and their crystallization temperatures when solidifying out of a magma. This set of samples includes all the minerals along the discontinuous branch of Bowen's reaction series, and is perfect for lessons on igneous rocks and minerals. Included in this set are 1" specimens of olivine, augite, hornblende, biotite, microcline, muscovite, and quartz.
