  • PUMICE | Pumice is formed from the frothy lava that a volcanic explosion creates. As the frothy lava cools, it hardens as a light weight rock that is filled with small gas bubbles. Because this rock is so porous and light, it can actually float on water
  • GREAT FOR GEOLOGY CLASSROOMS | Perfect for demonstrating the effect of vesicles on rock density, as well as for lesson in identification and classification of igneous rocks. This set of twelve samples is excellent for group study and examination
  • GEOLOGIST SELECTED | Each specimen is selected and hand processed by an actual geologist, ensuring each sample exhibits defining features
  • LOCALLY PROCESSED | Our rock and mineral samples are sourced from a variety of locations around the world and are processed in Victor, NY
  • INDIVIDUALLY PACKAGED & LABELED | Each specimen sample is packaged in a transparent bag, and is labeled & barcoded for easy identification
