What do you know about geodes?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Fri Jul 23, 2010 7:50 am

I have never heard much about geodes, but now have an idea of what they are.

This is the basic idea of them..
Geodes are round rocks containing a cavity that is lined with rock
crystals. A casual observer may pass by these rocks with no idea of the
treasure contained inside, but if you pay attention and know what to
look for, you might be rewarded with a fascinating discovery.
These fascinating structures can form in different ways. They can begin
as bubbles in volcanic rock, animal burrows, mud balls, or tree roots
in sedimentary rock. If a hollow cavity remains on the inside of the
shape, the outer shell hardens and water seeps in depositing minerals
which develop into crystals. The process resembles mineral deposits
inside a cave, on a smaller scale.

Roxanna,
according to what I read, they can be found, if you know what you are looking for.
I think I would rather have one I found than one somebody else found and already did things to it. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I know they are roundish rocks with crystals inside, and that's about it.
Breezey, are there certain geographical areas where they are more likely to be found?

This is what's in the article....

These fascinating structures can form in different ways. They can begin
as bubbles in volcanic rock, animal burrows, mud balls, or tree roots
in sedimentary rock. If a hollow cavity remains on the inside of the
shape, the outer shell hardens and water seeps in depositing minerals
which develop into crystals. The process resembles mineral deposits
inside a cave, on a smaller scale.
Certain areas in Iowa are among the better known places to look
for geodes. There are publicly accessible sites to look for geodes in
the western United States, but they can be found almost anywhere. How
do you identify a geode? They range in size from peas to over two feet
across, and are spherical. Sometimes there are loose crystals inside
that will rattle when shaken. And if you’re not interested in hunting
for them yourself, many rock shops have geodes for sale. You can either
purchase one that has been cut carefully to reveal its shining
interior, or perhaps select from a pile of “unknown” geodes and have
them broken or cut upon request. It’s always exciting to see what’s
inside.

Geology is so cool.
I think it would be interesting to be a geologist.
On a vacation to Little Rock, Arkansas ... I found lots of those "round rocks" in rock shops all over that area. They would cut them for you (for a fee), or you could crack them open yourself, to see what was on the inside. Believe it or not, I bought one, took it home ... and have never cracked it open! Gonna have to do that one day and see what's inside!

Here they're fairly common... although most are quartz.
Around riverbeds we pick up likely looking rocks and smash
'em ... sometimes you get lucky. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Quartz is such cool stuff!
It's really beautiful. Arkansas has lots of that, too.
