Capture What Counts Photography

Geode

A few weekends ago, we visited my dear friend Kim and her husband Randy, and they took us to Lake Cumberland in southern KY.  Kim was showing us around some points of interest when she asked us if we’d ever seen geodes.  Of course we were like “what?”  So she took us to one of the boat ramps and we commenced to searching for these amazing rocks.  We found 7 that we brought home and I couldn’t wait to get the hammer out and see what was waiting inside them!  Among them, we found this beauty!  SOOC.

The kind of geodes found here in KY contain quartz crystals.  There are geodes that contain amethyst in other parts of the country.  Amethyst is my birthstone, and I’d really love to have one of THOSE geodes.  In case you find one somewhere.  Just sayin’.  🙂

    • I was Amber! Kim showed me some of the ones she had found and I was super excited. I had to make myself wait until I got home so Macy could do it with me. 🙂
