These whole Geodes from Morocco are for you to enjoy opening yourself! You will be the first to see the beautiful wonders Mother Nature took millions of years to create.
Geodes from Morocco tend to contain nice bright quartz crystallization inside of them. This is a fun do-it-yourself project for anyone, and would make for a great gift item. Each geode will vary somewhat in shape and size. We will always send you what we feel is a fine specimen. Instruction included.
Measurement ~ 5"-6"
The term Geode is derived from the Greek word Geoides, meaning "earthlike." A geode is a rock that contains a hollow cavity lined with crystals. Geodes can occur in any hollow space, but most often begin as bubbles in volcanic rock. They can also form in animal burrows, tree roots, or mud balls in sedimentary rock. Over time, the outer shell of the spherical shape hardens, and water containing dissolved silicates and/or carbonates precipitates on the inside walls of the hollow cavity. The precipitation can contain any variety of dissolved minerals; the most common being quartz, amethyst and calcite.
