Tabasco Geodes

     The Gem Shop received a large batch of Tabasco Geodes from Zacatecas, Mexico. These baby geodes, formally known as Illianites are the world's smallest geode formation. Most of the geodes have a small rind of agate with tiny quartz crystals in the center. They sparkle in the light, and some are very colorful and have tube formations. These tiny pieces of druzy are perfect for jewelers to prong set or drill or for collectors to display. 
      They are also the exceptional pieces of their kind. Only one in ten are hollow when they come out of the mine. The batch we received are all hollow with druzy quartz. New small, medium, and large sizes will be available on our website soon!
