  • Omano Rock Specimen Education Kit

Ideal for the hobbyist collector, home schooling assignment, scouting project or hobby use, this educational rock collection includes 5 samples from each of the three major rock classifications: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks.

Igneous rocks are called "Fire Rocks", because they are the solid form of what was once molten lava. They make up 95% of the earth's crust and this collection features 5 of the most popular types of igneous rocks including granite, rhyolite, basalt, obsidian and scoria.

Metamorphic rocks began their life as sedimentary or igneous rocks that came under tremendous pressure. This pressure generates a great deal of heat, which causes the rock to literally "morph" or change into a metamorphic rock.  This collection features 5 of the most common types of metamorphic rocks such as slate, quartzite, marble, phyllite and Gneiss.

Sedimentary rocks are formed when plants, soil and animal matter settle to the muddy bottom of inland seas, lakes and oceans. Over millions of years and thousands of tons of pressure, these layers of mud eventually turn into rock. When the seas dry up, the rock becomes exposed to the elements, creating samples like limestone, sandstone, shale and coquina bituminus coal.

Each labeled specimen measures approximately 1" x 1," neatly housed in a divided storage container with an identification sheet. Choking Hazard: Small parts - not for children under 3 years.

Feed - Description Summary The new Omano OM-123L LED is a rechargeable LED stereo microscope with three levels of magnification: 10x, 20x and 30x. All metal with high quality glass optics, it can be used either indoors or outside in the field. It offers exceptional value for first time users or home hobyists and is used to view macro specimens that are visible to the naked eye such as insects, crystals, sea shells and more. The microscope includes 10x/20x/30x triple power magnification with WF10x eyepieces. It also features top and bottom, variable intensity LED illumination which is rechargeable and lasts all day on a single charge. Combined with a tough, ergonomic handle, this microscope is highly portable and convenient for use in the field or classroom with no need for messy wires. Optics Two Wide Field WF10x eyepieces combine with 1x/2x/3x objectives in a step turret magnification changer for magnification powers of 10x, 20x and 30x. Simply twist the objective housing until it clicks into place on the desired objective. The microscope also includes rubber eyeguards for improved viewing, adjustable interpupillary distance of 55-77mm and a left eyepiece diopter to allow for individual eye focusing. Focus & Illumination As with most stereo microscopes, the OM123L includes dual-sided coarse focus controls with over-sized knobs which are easier for student hands to use. Top and bottom illumination is powered by 110V ac or rechargeable LED with three settings: top, bottom and top and bottom together. Stand The OM123L includes a pedestal stand with included top and bottom LED illumination controllable with left and right side dimmer switches. Easy-to-use, affordable and no need for power cords to trip up the young ones, it is a perennial favorite! Accessories Accessories include rubber eyecups, a reversible black/white stage plate, frosted glass stage plate, two metal stage clips, vinyl dust cover and manual.
