Geodes are rocks that look ordinary on the outside but have beautiful crystals on the inside. In the Greek language, geode means “shape of the earth”. Geodes are created in the hollow areas of soil such as animal burrows or tree roots. They are also formed in the bubbles in volcanic rock. Over time, dissolved minerals seep into a hollow area and harden into an outer shell creating the geode. The minerals continue to form on the inside walls of the shell, growing towards the center. The most common dissolved mineral is quartz, but amethyst and other minerals are also found.
From the metaphysical point of view, geodes are wonderful for family harmony and the home. They are good for stimulating creativity and harmony.
