Oooohhh… buying rocks out of Manhattan? Sounds a little high-brow for my
friends “modest” request. Hoping to find something a little closer to “the
source”; thanks for your tips, however!

Does anyone know of a source for a large (approx 1 ft.) geode half? I friend
of mine is looking for one for a fish tank (go figure) so isn’t especially
concerned about getting the museum quality specimen. Any ideas?
Try Astro Gem Gallery or World of Gems and Minerals in midtown Manhattan
(Madison Avenue and 34th St). They have a good selection and reasonable
prices. Sorry I don’t have phone #'s, but I just walked by one day.
Also, you might try calling the curator of the Rock and Mineral collection at
the Museum of Natural History in NYC, I’m sure they have some great sources…
