Discover Amber Science Kit

This product is no longer available

Unfortunately we don't carry this item anymore, but check out some other awesome products that your fellow smart masses bought!


  • You get 5 chunks of raw amber
  • Polish the amber to discover whether your pieces have insects inside
  • Plus you get an amber-colored keychain with a real scorpion inside

So the first thing you need to know is that Amber is a fictional world created by Roger Zelazny. There are these nine princes, and most of them are vying for the throne. Now, there's this thing called The Pattern, and you can walk it if you're part of the family, and there are Trump Cards, but... what? Oh. Amber with a lowercase "a?" Darn.

So you can't control the universe with this amber, but you can discover wondrous things inside it. You'll get 5 pieces of raw amber, ready for your polishing skills. With the 6 pieces of gemstone-grade sandpaper, you'll polish them up shiny bright so you can see into them and find out if something was trapped inside, such as an insect that might contain DINOSAUR DNA! Oh no, wait. That bit was fiction, too. But it's a neat concept to discuss with your kids.
