Welcome to the world of strange and great-looking geology. Why I called as the world of strange? Have you ever been to see Agate Geodes before? It is like a surprising gift for you, it has a hard exterior and an interesting surprise center! This occurs in a certain sedimentary area and volcanic rocks formation. They are part of sedimentary origin, which is formed by a precipitation of chemical.
Closer look of Geodes
Agate Geodes are usually hollow, have a vague spheroid to oblate the masses of mineral water that has been formed by two process. The first one is by filling of gas bubbles within volcanic rocks by minerals deposited from hydrothermal fluids. The second one is created by dissolution of sedimentary nodules, and other fillings such as groundwater or hydrothermal fluids. One of the mysterious stone, we even will now know what’s inside this stone, until we cut it open or broken apart.
Agate Geodes are formed by various minerals. Calcite, pyrite, opal, and other known quartz mineral are the common examples of material that is consists within the stone, that is causing this stone have an uneven textures, and difference in colors. There are also known that Agate Geode slices often dyed with artificial colors. Imitation one will have an unusual colors, with an unlikely formations, so it will be easy to make a difference between the real and fake one.
It can be found easily
This stone can be found mostly on basaltic lavas and limestone. You can find a lot of Geodes on the Warsaw Formation in the Keokuk region, Missouri. Large number of Geode also can be found easily one the Arizona, California, and other volcanic ash beds location. Even on some videos, you can found a Geode easily without any kind of difficulties!
Finally, you can use you cute looking Geode as the main part of your home decoration, by simply put it on your living room, within the boxed glass, or other interesting transparent boxes.
