Prospector's Rock Hammer

The Prospector's Rock Hammer is a very light duty rock hammer with a 22 oz. drop forged head and a tubular handle with rubber grip. The hammer head is larger than the Estwing Rock Hammers. The pointed end is not tapered to the extent of nor is it as long as the Estwing Rock Hammers. This is not a tip for digging fossils as it is not tapered enough to really penetrate into sandstone. The larger hammer face, the thin grip, and the duller pointed end make it a great starter rock hammer for children when you're not sure the young geologist is going to stay interested.

Cheap enough that you can throw one in each of your vehicles just in case you come across an interesting roadcu.., er..., outcrop.

The Prospector's Rock Hammer is for light duty or use with soft rock. The hammer head is pressed onto a tubular steel handle. Since it isn't one solid piece of drop forged steel like the Valley Rock Hammer or Estwing Rock Hammers it can't be used for prying out specimens. As with any two piece hammer, after a little use the head will become detached from the handle. Best used as a hammer for young children without the upper body strength to really swing a hammer with any force. Consider this a toy or a one time use hammer.

  • Deluxe Moh's Mineral Hardness Pick Set

    The Deluxe Moh's Hardness Pick Set now comes in two case types. The wooden case is small enough to carry and the top screws into the base to make a perfect desk stand. The plastic case is longer but the thinner size makes it easier to carry in your field tool set.

    Hardness is an important and quantifiable physical characteristic of a mineral and in your effort to identify an unknown mineral, the hardness, if known, combined with other properties, can narrow your search to just a handful of possibilities. Simply scratch a smooth surface of your unknown mineral with the picks of various indicated hardness. As an example, if a No. 5 pick scratches the mineral, but a No. 4 pick does not, then your mineral hardness is 4.5. Then compare this against a table of minerals listing hardness values to aid in identifying the unknown mineral.
    The Deluxe Mohs' Hardness Pick Set from Mineralab is unique in that, unlike other mineral hardness test tool that use minerals or crystal points, Mineralab picks are made of metals and alloys of hardness values equal to 2 through 9 on Mohs hardness scale. Because the picks are made of metal, they are easily ground to sharp points which will not break off and which can be easily sharpened.

    What is included in the Mineralab's Deluxe Mohs' Hardness Pick Set?

    • Four double-ended picks with eight points comprising 2 and 3, 4 and 5,
      6 and 7, 8 and 9 on Mohs’ hardness scale.

    • High quality brass pinch vises.

    • A glass plate (hardness of about 5.5) which, when scratched,
      quickly distinguishes hard from soft minerals.

    • A second hardness plate with a hardness value of 3.5.

    • A streak plate for testing a mineral’s streak color.

    • A magnet to test magnetic rocks such as magnetite and pyrrhotite.

    • A 100 grit polishing stone to keep the points sharp.

    • An attractive, mahogany-finished and compact wooden case.

    • Complete usage instructions.


    Other Features:

    • All points are stamped with the indicated hardness value, and each double-ended
      pick body is color coded for quickly finding the desired pick.

    • Hardness points can be easily and inexpensively replaced without having to
      replace the pick bodies.

    • Compact. The wooden storage case is only 7" tall by 2.5" wide.

    • Also use to test hardness of various materials encountered in the industrial,
      excavation, and archeological fields.

    • 1 Year Warranty
    If you are ordering only a Deluxe Moh's Hardness Pick Set you can save money on shipping by choosing USPS Priority Mail. We will use a USPS Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box and I'll adjust your total to pass the savings back to you.

  • This rock tumbler is the real thing! Light duty rock tumbler actually changes rough stones to beautiful high-luster semi-precious gemstones. You can even make jewelry and key chains with the settings included in this set. Set includes rotary tumbling machine , rough semi-precious stones (including amethyst, jasper, agate, and others), grit, polish, jewelry settings, glue, and instruction manual. Ages 10 and Up. U.L. Listed.

    Great little tumbler for kids to learn about mechanical "weathering" (polishing) of rocks. Just like in a stream the rocks are rolled over and over in a grinding powder. In a stream or river the grit would be sand and fine dirts and clays. In this kit the grit and polish are provided. And it only takes about 6 weeks to polish the rocks unlike months and years in a stream!

    Refill kits available.
