If your children are amazed by rocks then they will love learning all about the incredible rock formations known as geodes. From the outside, geodes look like another boring round rock but crack one open and kids will be amazed by what they find inside. Geodes are formed in hallow areas of the earth where minerals dissolve and seep over time to form their outer shell. But as the minerals continue to form the inside walls of the shell, a miracle happens.
Over millions of years these minerals grow toward the center of the shell creating the most beautiful crystals inside. Some geodes are completely filled while others remain partially hollow but either way their beautiful crystals are awe inspiring. Found throughout the world in various shapes, colors, and sizes, geodes are commonly found in states like California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, and Iowa, where the geode is the state rock.
