Description of Desired Specimens

I am trying to find samples of various rocks to do a lab for the kids to teach them the Mohs scale. With Covid restrictions, I need to get a minimum of 12 sets put together for this, 24 would be better. I am looking for rocks at all levels of the scale. Most sets have Talc, Gypsum, Calcite, Fluorite, Apatite, Feldspar, Quartz, Topaz, Corundum, but I am open to other samples anywhere in the range! The samples can be small! If you have information or connections, I would be interested in ANY information as we have a very limited budget at our school and these items get pricey if I purchase in rock sets!


If you even have source information with decent prices for schools, I would appreciate any assistance!
