The first hint that a rock is a geode is the appearance on the outside it will be pitted. the second is the weight it will fill light for it's size. the good thing about them is you don't know what you have till you open it. the second is they can can found in many locations

I love geodes. They have got to be my favorite rock. I got my first one when I was probably 8 years old and I got my last one back in 2007, although I haven't collected too many through the years. There's just something about a shimmery rock that I find absolutely beautiful. Welcome to mylot!

When i can i will post the picture showing the inside of the geode. it has tiny amethyst (purple quartz). my grand son and i found it on one of our outing.i like that you never know what it is till you open it.

One half of geode - One half of geode. Isn't it pretty?
That's not necessary. I believe that I saw the picture on your profile? One of the things I love about geodes are the crystals that are lined inside of it. So, how are you enjoying mylot so far?
