What mystery lies beneath the surface?
Each geode has a quartz or calcite crystal surprise just waiting to be discovered.
A geode is a kind of rock formation that occurs when a pocket of air or gas
forms a cavity in sedimentary rock. The rock formed surrounding the air or gas, creating the "crust" of the geode. Minerals dissolved in water create a solution, which leaks into the rock over a long period of time. The result is layers of crystals being formed within the hollow space of the rock, creating the geode.
You can break open your geode in numerous ways. One of the ways we find to be especially effective is to first place the geode between two towels, then carefully hit the geode with either a book or a hammer. Careful not to hit it too hard, or you'll end up with lots of pieces!
