If I could have my house crammed to the hilt with Geodes I would. I love them, no I ADORE them. When I find one that I have to have, I buy and place them around my home as interesting objects de art in their most natural, precious form. God help me if I ever go to a Mineral show, I don’t think I could ever go to one and not leave with thousands of dollars worth of stones. So I will stay away from them for now, or at least until I buy a bigger home so that I can have a large mineral curio cabinet. Until that day comes I will admire my small collection.
