There are no words to describe how much I love geodes. I already wrote about the more technical stuff on how they’re formed here. I had a lot of fun coming up with great titles for these listings because the scenes in them always remind me of something else . . . like this one:
I call this The Blue Lagoon Tabasco Geode because if you’ve ever been to The Blue Lagoon in Iceland, you’ll know what I mean. If you haven’t been, here’s a picture and definitely put it on your bucket list:

If you’ve been following me, you know that lots of stones remind me of food items . . . Anyone in the mood for oysters?

And look at this amazing moonscape inside of this geode (I see myself in a space suit waving over a fellow astronaut to share my latest moon rock discovery #activeimagination) :

From outer space, I beam to a tropical paradise. Fresh coconuts are hanging low, gently swaying in the breeze. With no effort, I pluck one off and open it with my machete and POW! SPARKLY COCONUTS!
#daydreams. This is a photo I took on Koh Mook in Thailand then got creative with photoshop, haha.
As you probably already know, geodes can come in giant sizes (larger than a human body) or they can be tiny. Baby geodes from the Tabasco state in Mexico are the perfect size for jewelry making.
Tabasco geodes are super light weight and our latest batch measure about 10-15mm in length — truly perfect for everyday fun earrings or pendants. Here are 3 super simple ways you can use them:
- Epoxy earring posts in the backs and make studs
- Insert wire on top and make french wire earrings
- Insert a wire at the top, make a loop, put chain through for necklace
We drill geodes on request — leave us a note in ‘message to seller’ during checkout.
Interested in picking some up?
Here are some samples of some NEW ones too. Photo album on Facebook:
