What cooler way to start a rock collection than to dig for treasure yourself?
Get out the digging tool and brush and excavate 10 real gemstones from a block of packed earth using the same tools and techniques as real gem-hunters, archaeologists, and palaeontologists. You'll find purple amethyst, pyrite (or fools gold), quartz crystals, striped tigers eye, and other semi-precious stones. An adventure guide details 10 games, puzzles, and challenges to help you learn unique details of your newly unearthed treasures. Winner of Creative Child magazines 2013 Kids Product of the Year.
