|Do you need a set of field equipment for a young geologist and you're not sure what you need? Or do you just want to save at least an additional 5% by buying the equipment as a set? I've taken my recommendations for the field equipment choices that a young geologist or rockhound needs to get started and created a wizard to guide you through the steps of creating your kit. Like a multiple course meal's menu I provide a selection of the most appropriate products and you choose one from my recommends. I'll give you four or five choices mostly based on price for each product.
When you've finished with the wizard you'll have built your own customized kit. Each kit will contain:

Heavy duty 3/4'' plain black nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle and a split ring. This lanyard may be used for any purpose but we've had it custom manufactured specifically for use with the BelOMO loupe.
Important: We offer this lanyard for no additional charge when you buy the combo package of the BelOMO loupe with attached lanyard. Attaching the lanyard requires a screw to be removed so let us do it. We've been doing it for years and you save money!
Use the split ring on loupes with a mounting hook. To use the lanyard with a BelOMO loupe remove one screw on the support shaft of your BelOMO loupe, swivel the frame out of the way and slide the end over the support shaft then install the screw again. Don't use the split ring to attach the lanyard to the loupe. (We suggest that you purchase the loupe with the lanyard already installed.)
This is a great little pocket guide to rocks and minerals. It uses color drawings to illustrate the rocks and minerals which I find is far more handy that pictures of museum quality specimens. Rocks and minerals in the field often don't know what they're supposed to look like so they are more average than those museum exhibits!
Our review: "The youngest child may just enjoy playing with the stickers. An older child can read the descriptions and will learn about rocks, minerals, and fossils."
