The Fantasia® brand of Purple Geode specimens are imported by the ton directly from Morocco to Fantasia Mining's USA rock yard. The Geodes are naturally earth mined with beautiful quartz that has been dyed purple to enhance the color and beauty of the stones. Pyrite (fools gold) is then melted down and flecks are sprayed onto the geode to add a beautiful gold flash. Both children and adults alike love these geodes with their deep coloring and fantastic beauty. The outer shell of the geodes have been cleaned and a thin layer of black material is added to prevent the transfer of dirt or shedding of the outer shell. Since the geode starts as a naturally earth mined stone and no two are alike, your order will contain geodes that are similar but not identical to the pieces in our images.
