Mama's Minerals Now Features Break-Your-Own Geodes Gift Pack

November 02, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Albuquerque, NM Mama's Minerals, a leading purveyor of semi-precious gemstones and gemstone beads, now offers shoppers an opportunity to explore the world of geodes at home with the Break-Your-Own Geodes gift pack. Each gift pack comes with three whole geodes ready to be broken to reveal the treasures inside.

Geodes are geological structures which occur in certain sedimentary and volcanic rocks. The rough exterior of these spheres hides a sparkling universe of crystals inside. Most contain quartz crystals, but other possibilities include chalcedony, druzy quartz, calcite or selenite. To reveal the secrets inside simply place the geodes inside the included cloth bag, lay them on a sidewalk, and tap gently but firmly with a hammer or mallet. Each gift pack comes with cracking and safety information and educational information on how geodes are formed.

This fun and educational gift allows kids 6 and older to learn about geological processes as well as enjoy a beautiful keepsake of colorful crystals hidden inside a rough stone. Each gift pack is available for $9.99. While many geodes contain exciting crystal formations, these are natural geodes and Mama's Minerals cannot guarantee the content some may be solid agate or contain no crystals.
