Large geode wanted


#1

Hi Folks,

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…

Beys rock shop in Boyertown, Pa has many geodes that are sold by the pound.

Thanks Victoria!

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! :slight_smile:

I’ve got about a half dozen amethyst clusters and cathedrals from 8 1/2 to
70 lbs. Prices from $12 to $20 per lb. If you let me know what you can spend
I’ll photograph some for you.

Dave:

Try www.teleport.com/~tfish. The site features “naked fish and rocks,” and
they mention some very large Oregon thundereggs – usually hollow – that
might be available inexpensively (except for shipping!)
