Mined from areas where prehistoric volcanoes erupted, Geodes are not something youll find everyday or everywhere. They are especially remarkable wonders of our planet.
Following prehistoric volcano eruptions, air bubbles became trapped inside solid rock as the lava cooled. Over millions of years, minerals inside these pockets slowly grew into glimmering crystals or, as in this case, shining pyrite.
Grab a hammer and get to work. Seven geodes are yours for the breaking. Smash them open and dazzle your eyes with gold.
