Break your Own Mini Quartz Geodes
These are mini Quartz geodes, measuring 30-60MM approximately.
They are primarily clear Quartz, but there may be some Calcite geodes too. It is almost impossible to tell without cracking them open.
These geodes have a reasonably large air gap in the centre and thin walls. This makes them quite easy to crack!
You could use a hammer, or any other heavy metal object, but the more precise, the better – a rock hammer is ideal.
I have opened several of these geodes with a regular claw hammer, so it is definitely possible to do it with basic tools. The simplest and safest way to open these mini Quartz geodes is to wrap them in a cloth and give them a few gentle taps until they start to crack naturally.
However, this will be a very rough method of opening the geodes - precise is better, especially if you don't want the geodes to shatter into a hundred pieces.
Due to the nature of geodes, it is simply impossible for us to guarantee satisfaction without opening them. If you receive a Geode that does not contain any crystals, or your Geode was broken in transit, please contact us for a replacement item.
We cannot be held responsible for any injuries incurred when you break your own geodes. Please make sure to wear safety glasses and gloves and wash geodes thoroughly after breaking. The internal crystals may be very sharp. Children should be supervised at all times while opening Geodes.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
