It’s almost Easter so I think it’s time to for some Crystal Hottie Egg Shell Geode GROWIN’ again!!
Sound like fun? It is!
Grow Your Own Crystal Geodes!
About 6 months ago I posted a photo on my FB page of 1 of my recent crystal growing specimens. You see, the Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Masters grow crystals as part of their course ohhhm-work & so I decided to show them a super-fun & popular lab experiment I used to do with my teenage science students. This version I’m presenting here is really watered down so no long essays on crystallography necessary. LUCKY YOU! I showed these off on my FB page & proceeded to get a ton of questions asking how to grow these.
I had no idea so many Crystal Hotties would get into this?
So, I filmed a how-to video & created a downloadable pdf giving you step by step instructions on how to grow your very own. (WARNING: the maker of this video has a major obsession with the TV show Breaking Bad!) 😉
I feel it’s really important to also get to know our crystals in a different way; to learn how & why they grow & just how Mama Earth cooks them up in her kitchen! And I love when Crystal Hotties post photos of their geode creations on my FB page.
Geodes can take thousands or even millions of years to grow…but this grow-your-own variation will only take a couple of days, thank goodness. This is a great activity to do with kids while also giving us a little insight into the science behind the magical geology. And you’ll end up with some drop-dead gorgeous crystals in the end! Learning can be tons o’ fun when you approach it the right way. 😉
So instead of a basket full of plain colored eggs, how about a basket full of colorful & glittery egg shell geodes?Click here to grab your step by step pdf instructions and get crackin!
Please, please, please…if you do this project will you share either your photos or video with me & the rest of our Crystal Community on my FB page or share you story in the comments below? I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!!
Sparkly Spring Blessings,
