All kids young and old love geodes! The rough exterior of these spheres hide a sparkling universe inside.
What IS inside? Only you can find out with this unopened and unpolished Moroccan geode. Quartz is most common but other possibilities include chalcedony, druzy quartz, calcite, and/or selenite. To crack your geode, place it inside a cloth, lay it on a sidewalk, and tap gently but firmly with a hammer or mallet. You can also use a hammer and chisel for a cleaner break.
Breaking open geodes is fun and educational! Teachers, enhance your science unit with this motivational project for students.
