Break Your Own Geodes

Pop one of these roughly 1-1/4" dia stones into the toe of a sock, smash it with a hammer, and be the first person ever to see your real-as-Nature-makes-it geode!! Ninety percent of them have the familiar beautiful white crystals inside. Formed by volcanic action, they are found all over the world, but ours are from Mexico. There is no way to tell from the outside if they have crystal centers, but we will send you two just to raise your odds, and we haven't had a dud yet in our stores!! Much much more fun and satisfaction than buying one already cracked.

We’re Selenite By Nite And Day

These here selenite wands are quite the specimens. You know selenite? It’s a variety of gypsum, and it’s mighty purdy and crystal-ish. You’ll get a wand of it, somewhere in the 5” to 8” long range, and maybe about a 1/2” on each side. Add a Laser Pointer and have some naturally ocurring fiber optic fun! Whatever else you do with it (besides look at it up close in amazement), is up to you. But you’ll always be able to say, “Want to see my selenite wand?”
