Geodes are hollow rocks containing an inner layer of crystal. The outer layer looks just like any other rock, making them easy to overlook. However, when you open a geode up, you will be greeted by a beautiful display of crystals.
Geode formation is a complex process that takes place over thousands or even millions of years. These rocks begin as hollow bubbles inside of igneous and sedimentary rocks that likely formed due to the presence of tree roots or animal burrows. Over time, and with the presence of groundwater, minerals are deposited within these hollow spaces. Changes in temperature or chemistry cause the minerals to precipitate out of the water and harden along the cavity walls.
The word Geode comes from the Greek term, Geoides, which means Earth-like. In the healing world, geodes are strange phenomena to many and hold a meaning that assists with harmony and creativity from a metaphysical perspective. Each geode holds a special energy and can hold just about anything.
Geodes spread the energy throughout a room and can be used for a multitude of purposes, including assistance with decision-making, facilitating communication between people in the same healing fields or with divine beings, creating good moods and energies, help with meditation, stress relief, and more. The type of crystal a geode contains will determine the benefits it can provide you.
Geodes can be used to charge other crystals but placing them within the geode.
