Geode is one of our most popular designs. The bold and colorful design was and is intended to conduct and resonate only positive energy just like its namesake rock formations.
So what is a geode anyway?
Geodes are spherical rocks that contain hollow cavities lined with crystals. The name geode comes from the Greek word Geoides, which means "earthlike." These unique rocks can be formed in a variety of ways.
In volcanic rock, geodes start out as bubbles. Geodes can form in areas far away from volcanoes, too. In sedimentary rock, geodes might start out as animal burrows, mud deposits, or even tree roots.
Over time, the air, mud, or tree roots create a hollow cavity within the rock, while the outer edges harden into a spherical shape. Then the real scientific magic happens as ground water begins to flow around and through these rocks.
Ground water naturally picks up a variety of minerals as it makes its way down from the surface. These minerals, including quartz, amethyst, and calcite among others, become dissolved in the ground water and then get deposited on the inside of developing geodes over long periods of time.
After thousands of years of ground water seepage, what is the result?
You can see the beautiful result when you open a geode to reveal crystal points and/or layers of banded crystals inside the geode's cavity.
Like a fingerprint, every geode is unique, because each geode has a unique composition that is different from every other geode. The only way to discover the beauty inside of a geode is to crack it open with a rock hammer or cut it open with a rock saw.
Geodes will vary widely in terms of their size, crystal formation, and colors.
Geodes are widely known to aid energy flow in a space. It will facilitate an increase in positive energy; for balance, positive moods, spiritual protection and healing.
