What is a Geode???? It's a question I've had and I'm sure many others are wondering what is so special about Geode Pendants?? Well, this is what a Geode is according to Wikipedia:
Geodes (Greek γεώδης - geōdēs, "earthlike") are geological rock formations which occur in sedimentary and certain volcanic rocks. Geodes are essentially rock cavities or vugs with internal crystal formations or concentric banding. The exterior of the most common geodes is generally limestone or a related rock, while the interior contains quartz crystals and/or chalcedony deposits. Other geodes are completely filled with crystal, being solid all the way through. These types of geodes are called nodules.
Most contain clear quartz crystals, and others have purple amethyst crystals. Still others can have agate, chalcedony, or jasper banding or crystals such as calcite, dolomite, celestite, etc. There is no easy way of telling what the inside of a geode holds until it is cut open or broken apart. However, geodes from any one locality usually have a more restricted variety of interior mineralization.
Geodes and geode slices are sometimes dyed with artificial colors. Samples of geodes with unusual colors or highly unlikely formations have usually been synthetically altered.
So, there you have it! A scientific explanation of what Geode is and how it is formed. Personally, we just think they are REALLY COOL and make FANTASTIC PENDANTS!!! Over the last few weeks, my sister and I have been designing new jewelry and preparing the FALL SEASON!!! A good part of our new collection will include Geode Pendants.
