Breaking your own geode is fun and educational. Geodes are formed from fluids which crystallize in cavities within the rounded rock or nodule. Breaking a geode is a surprise as you will never know what you will get. Take a chance! You might be lucky.
How to Break Open Your Own Geode
- Put the geode in a bag or a sock. Hit it firmly with a hammer aiming for the center. Take care not to hit your fingers. Be use to use an old sock - it will probably get a hole in it!
