SPLIT ROCK CRYSTAL GEODE
The chalky white exterior of this egg-like geode offers no hint as to what is hidden on the inside. Once opened, however, it reveals itself to be lined with white quartz crystal points shading to pale amethyst at the tips. More dramatically, however, there are several large red-brown calcite crystals lining each small vug, creating a lovely contrast in one of nature's most marvelous secrets revealed, each half measuring approximately 3 3/8 x 3 x 3 inches.
