Kidz Rocks is founded by Alan Scalone who is dedicated to educating children. He co-founded ClickN KIDS and he has taught tens of thousands of failed readers to read in over 100 countries. ClickN KIDS markets the world's first and best online delivered computer based reading and spelling programs that closely simulate live teacher instruction. Alan has been a rock hound and amateur geologist since 1980 and through Kidz Rocks he is now able to share the fascinating world of rocks and minerals he has enjoyed for so many years.
Kidz Rocks brings the amazing world of rocks and minerals to kids and adults of all ages. At Kidz Rocks you will find the high quality rocks and minerals available at prices well below all other online retailers. We source minerals either directly from the mines or from those that directly deal with the mines. As a result, significant savings are passed on to you instead of numerous "middle men". Some of the minerals on our site are also mined by hand by the founder of Kidz Rocks, Alan Scalone.
At Kidz Rocks, you will find primarily rocks and minerals that are the most interesting to children and young adults. Minerals that foster a child's curiosity in the world around them and a love of learning. Minerals with vibrant colors, unique crystal shapes and interesting combination's of minerals that not only attract a child's interest but provide excellent learning opportunities.
While there are some smaller sized bagged minerals for sale on Kidz Rocks for use by schools, the vast majority of the minerals available are all larger than 2 inches. So many rock and mineral stores sell 1/2 inch to 1 inch minerals that, while they may look like large specimens on the web site, when you receive them they are very small and not very interesting. What's worse is that you paid a lot of money for such a small sized specimen. With mineral specimens, there is a huge difference between a 1 inch and a 3 inch specimen.
As collectors of Mother Nature's fine art, our large specimen size and low price commitment will be a fine addition to your art collection!
