Geodes In The News

A geode graces the cover of the 60th Anniversary edition of The Iowan in 2011.

Sheffler's Geode Mine

This was big news a few years ago, when the Missouri DOT leveled this longtime landmark, and geode icon in the name of progress. I have not as of yet heard an accurate explanation of the current state of affairs for this facility. This Spring, it is my intention to find out ! When I do, I will share it here.

 

World's Largest Geode

(taken from the Heineman's Winery website)

Discovered by workers in 1897 while digging a well for the winery 40 feet above, Crystal Cave is the world's largest geode. The walls of this cave are covered in strontium sulfate, a blueish mineral called celestite. These crystals range from 8 to 18 inches long. The original cave was much smaller than what appears today, as crystals were harvested and sold for the manufacturing of fireworks.
