Stunning half large Moroccan desert geode. These natural marvels capture the essence of geological artistry, formed from gas bubbles within volcanic lava where crystals gradually developed. As the lava flow weathered away over time, the quartz geode remained buried deep in the Moroccan desert. Geodes found in desert environments are subjected to intense weathering and erosion. The constant exposure to wind, sand abrasion, and temperature fluctuations can make these geodes more delicate, ideal for on a shelf near your place of work or meditation.

 

Please refer to the geode's additional notes below to learn about their delicate mineral composition.

Additional Details

White Moroccan geodes are not typically considered to be quartz. While they can contain quartz, the white appearance in many Moroccan geodes is often due to other minerals.
Some highlights:
Composition: aragonite, calcite, and quartz in a small amount.
Loose aggregation: The crystals within sand geodes can be loosely bonded. Unlike geodes with interlocking quartz crystals, the minerals in these geodes may not be as tightly integrated, leading to a weaker overall structure.
Porosity: Desert geodes can have a high degree of porosity, meaning they contain many small voids or pockets within their structure. This porosity can compromise the geode’s structural integrity, making it more susceptible to breaking apart.
Appearance and texture: Quartz crystals are harder and have a glassy luster. Desert geodes might have a more pearly-like luster and are more flaky and crumble-prone due to their tier degree of porosity.
