These books are beautiful! The illustrations are so vivid and striking! On top of that each illustration is labeled with the type of rock or mineral and the pages have additional geology information.

Pages have bright, realistic illustrations, a line of text in a large, script font, and then additional information about the rock names and formation in smaller print.
