The effect rocks and minerals have on our daily lives is not always obvious, but this book will help explain how essential they really are. There are hundreds of minerals used regularly in the United States for defense, industrial, agricultural, residential, medical , and cosmetic purposes. The minerals provided in this kit are a small sample of the minerals that Americans likely encounter but take for granted each day.
