Introduction to Rocks

This is an outstanding rock identification chart! The introduction explains that each type of rock is the result of a specific mixture of minerals subjected to a clearly defined geological process. It shows and describes the most common rock-forming minerals and variations that occur within rock types.

The bulk of the poster is divided into three sections, one for each rock type: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. An illustration shows how they are made, and a photograph shows a natural formation. A dozen other photographs show representative specimens. Each is accompanied by an informative caption citing identifying characteristics and common variations.

A bonus section shows and explains some of the more specialized and popular rock forms, such as geodes, concretions, agates, and meteorites.

This is a great poster for earth science classes. Rock collectors find it invaluable for quick reference.

A nice option for those of us who are visual learners! Nicely printed, I am going to frame my Rocks Poster. The first order was crushed in shipment and they replaced it quickly, no questions asked. I'll be back!

What a great poster! The rocks are beautifully presented with great photography, and lots of information as described. The quality of the poster paper is glossy and looks great hanging on my wall. Exactly as displayed on their site and what I was looking for. Excellent for anyone, at any age, who wants to learn more about rocks. The seller kept in touch until I got my poster which was delayed at the post office.
