Excavate 3 genuine golden nuggets just like a real treasure hunter with this incredible hands-on science kit! Your treasure hunter will think they hit the mother lode as they uncover 3 genuine pyrite specimens buried inside the gold bar shaped digging brick. Pyrite is also known as “fool’s gold” because many of the miners that found this glistening mineral thought they had struck it rich! Do you think your kid's friends can tell the difference? Or will these golden nuggets fool them as well? This hands-on dig kit includes an excavation tool, brush, magnifying glass, and a full-color information guide so that you can learn all about gold. The info guide was written by teachers and will explain all about gold mining, and the various uses of gold throughout history. Plus, there's an activity booklet with 10 fun games, puzzles, and challenges to complete. What a great way to start a rock and mineral collection. This is a must-have gift for the rock hound or treasure hunter in your house!
