Geodes are like the Tootsie Roll Pop of the geology world because underneath the hard exterior lies a surprise center!
Geodes start their lives as a hollow bubble inside a layer of rock. The bubble could be from air inside explosive volcanic rock or it could come from the hollow remains of animal burrows or tree roots. Most geodes have interiors made of either quartz or calcite. Quartz crystals are silicates.
