Rock Sets

We have rock sets designed around various themes available for schools, educational clubs and STEM Ambassadors to borrow. Each rock set contains real specimens formed in different geological environments and comes with accompanying information cards.  A great way of bringing Earth science to life in the classroom! 

To request to borrow a rock set and check availability please contact Amy Ball.

Rock sets are free to borrow but please note that there may be a charge for losses or damages. If you cannot collect the rock sets from the Geological Society you will need to pay for their return postage.
