Geodes start at $8.99 and go up to over $200.00. The price is determined by the size of the geode and there are a variety of sizes and prices to choose from.
At Discovery Depot, all geodes are priced to include the cutting fee. We also offer a selection of less expensive, crack-your-own geodes upstairs in A to Z Minerals and Ancient Fossils, so you can bring the fun home. Be sure to wear protective eye-wear while enjoying this educational fun!
Yes! When you select a geode, you keep the whole thing. We are, however, very happy to accept donations for our geode display.
We have nicknamed geodes “Mother Nature’s Lottery Ticket” because you never know what you’re going to get until after it’s been opened. But since you’re starting with the remnants of the “bubble shell,” you’ll always have something to bring home as a souvenir of your visit full to Discovery Depot!
Unfortunately, we do not have any way of determining what the inside of a geode looks like. We can, however, tell you which mine a particular geode is from and show you similar geodes. Keep in mind; every geode is one-of-a-kind and beautiful in its own way.
