Break Your Own Geodes

Get your own piece of prehistoric treasure! Once you've finished mining for your gemstones, there are other hidden treasures waiting for your discovery. Geodes were formed millions of years ago when prehistoric volcanoes erupted and gas bubbles were trapped in the lava. The result is a science phenomenon: incredible crystal caverns withing each exciting geode. Geodes are found throughout the world, but the most concentrated areas are located in the deserts. Volcanic ash beds, or regions containing limestone, are common geode locations. There are many easily accessible geode collecting sites in the western United States, including in California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada.

Geodes are some-what of a mystery. Not only is it impossible for one to know exactly what’s on the inside, however, each geode offers a unique glimpse of the spontaneous beauty nature can generate with the earth’s minerals. Just gently hit one with a hammer and it will break open to reveal a hidden treasure. We offer several sizes to choose from and all tools and safety equipment is provided. And, all the treasures you find are yours to take home!
