Each sample sits in it’s own compartment in a plastic tray with a transparent plastic lid.

Rocks:
A rock is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of one or more minerals or mineraloids – a term used to describe a number of different hypotheses which suggests that petroleum and natural gas are formed by inorganic means rather than by the decomposition of organisms.

Minerals:
A mineral is a naturally occurring substance that is solid and stable at room temperature and can be represented by a chemical formula, usually abiogenic, and has an ordered atomic structure.

agate, alabaster, amethyst, barites, beryl, boron, calcite, chalcopyrite, china clay, dolomite, feldspar, fire clay, fullers earth, galena, graphite, magnetite, mica black, ochre yellow, pyrolusite, pyrophylite, quartz, soap stone, sulphur, talc, tourmaline.
