My kids are excellently crazy over this manual. It is perfect for a family because we homeschool and love to learn about things like this.

This is neatly organized and contains extensive details about each rock, mineral, and gem. The pictures are beautiful and there are even sections where you can take notes and describe what you are studying.”—Christopher R.
