A wide variety of geology and earth science-related kits, tools, and supplies for classroom use. Products include rock/mineral specimens, rock picks, Moh's hardness kits, educational models, streak plates, rock/mineral test kits, and rock tumblers.
For use as tool to explain specific gravity to students - EISCO Galena Mineral Specimen is used in classroom identification labs and exercises, correlates well to Next Generation Science Standards Evidence Statements.
For use in exercises in igneous rock classification. EISCO Volcanic Tuff Specimen (Igneous Rock) is formed by ash and dust deposited during explosive volcanic eruptions that eventually become compacted and lithified, forming large packages of tuff. These
For use in studying both igneous and metamorphic rocks. EISCO Hornblende (Amphibole Mineral) Specimen is part of group of minerals known as amphiboles, which are chemically and structurally similar to pyroxenes, but include water in their atomic structure
For use in studying hydrothermal alteration of rocks and minerals. EISCO Amphibolite Specimen (Metamorphic Rock) is formed from hornblende that has undergone significant amount of differential pressure.
This freestanding seismograph model simulates all the parts of a seismograph and can produce a record of localized movement by running a pencil over a roll of paper. The measurements made by the seismograph can be studied and analyzed, allowing students to compare several different seismic events.
For study of foliation and alteration of these metamorphic rocks to understand the immense heat and pressure needed to form them. EISCO; Metamorphic Rocks Kit contains 12 specimens measuring approx. 3cm (1 in.) and specimen key.
