Geode

Geologists have long been challenged to explain how geodes,
those mysterious spherical rocks, are formed.
Geodes are a variable phenomenon, which means that they
may be created in various different ways.
The term geode is derived from the Greek word Geoides which
means “earthlike.”

A geode is a round rock which contains a hollow cavity lined with
crystals.
Geodes are found throughout the world, but the most concentrated
areas are located in the deserts. Volcanic ash beds, or regions
containing limestone, are common geode locations.

Geodes can help you see the whole picture and help with coming
to a decision before things get out of hand.

Each geode holds special energy. They are more about reminding one
of a feeling than about healing other things. Such as meditating,
one can hold that knowledge and assist you in remembering to do it,
or to exercise, or getting the rest you need, or something as simple as
remembering to smile!
