    *Geodes are irresistible. They fill display cases and museums everywhere. It’s hard to deny the allure of a rock that is rugged and weathered on the outside, yet so sparkly and colorful on the inside.

     

    But where do geodes actually come from?  It turns out that what looks like a solid entity on the outside begins with an absence of material.  A geode typically begins when a cavity forms in a rock, which can happen several ways.

    Cavities are most common in igneous rock created by cooling lava or magma. Usually this happens when a bubble of carbon dioxide and water vapor forms in flows of lava, “much like bubbles in carbonated beverages.”  As the molten rock cools and the gas dissolves, empty space is left behind.

     

    Geodes can also form in sedimentary rocks such as limestone or sandstone. The cavity in these rocks is usually formed from a solid core. A mass of minerals, or nodule, in the sediment may begin to dissolve and leave space behind. In other cases, organic matter such as coral, a fossil, or a piece of wood buried in the sediment weathers out over time.

    Iridescents ~ Displaying a play of lustrous colors like those of the rainbow.
