Who knew rocks could be so cool? A centerpiece. A “flower”. A sculpture.
I love this botanical at the entrance to Dallas Market Center that uses a geode as the “bloom”. It will never wilt. It took millions of years to form.
And these geode sculptures from Arteriors.
And these geodes from Pettigrew that were the perfect complement for my client’s updated master bedroom as if they were dyed using the same pigment for her rug.
What is a geode exactly? Check out this link: http://www.rocksandminerals4u.com/geodes.html
Which states: “Geodes are like the Tootsie Roll Pop of the geology world because underneath the hard exterior lies a surprise center!”
They are formed by a cavity in hard rock either from a volcanic air bubble, or an animal burrow or tree roots. Over millions of years, as mineral-rich water moves through the cavity, tiny crystals get deposited, clinging to the inside of the cavity. The crystal formations left behind are amazing “works of art”. No two exactly alike.
