Frequently asked questions
Why are their different prices on different geodes (unopened)?

The answer to this question depends on 3 factors: size, variety, scarcity. Size: 2 geodes from the same locale without knowing what's inside, the larger geode is always going to be more expensive (larger pocket, larger secondary crystals). Second, and probably most important is the variety and quality of crystals that can be found on the inside. Example: Moroccan geodes are beautiful, but they are all the same color on the inside which limits the collectors incentive to continue buying more and more (if they're all going to be the same on the inside). In addition to being the same color Moroccan geodes are extremely abundant which is the last characteristic-Scarcity. This is a simple supply/demand concept where scarcity creates demand.

Can these geodes be cracked open at home?

Yes! Each of our geodes is carefully sorted to ensure that each geode is as hollow as possible and thus easier to crack open. Each unopened geode comes with an instruction card on how to crack open the geode and what tools are needed.

I want an amethyst, which geode (s) give me the best chance?

Your best chance of obtaining an Amethyst geode are with the Mexican geodes, Tabasco geodes, and the Oco geodes.

What's the best way to open my geode?

We always recommend that one use a hammer and chisel to open their geode. This method as opposed to just whacking it with a hammer will give you a better chance of cracking the geode into two pieces. Better yet you can purchase the "pre-scored" finish option which increases your chances even further that the geode will crack into two pieces upon opening. All un-opened geodes come with a card containing cracking instructions.
