    Most geodes are a lot tougher than that.

    Stick it back together with super glue and the handyman’s secret weapon: Duck Tape.

    Why not just hand him a hand grenade? Same result.

    … or Nelson could now give a (piece of a) geode to each of his friends (and still save a piece for himself).

    It appears that the geode Earl gave Nelson was (only) half of a (the original) geode – that was cut in two. [You can also get a whole geode that you would have to break (or have cut) open to see the crystals inside.]

    Sure, but you’ll have to wait ten million years.

    Ten million years to form, ten seconds to break!

    That’s what grandparents are for – getting things their parents won’t give them. (Or, in this case, a precious stone replacement)

    I’m pretty sure a geode is created by the crystallization of extremely hot rock, such as a chunk of magma thrown out of a volcano. If it then cools slowly, crystals can form. However, NOT millions of years slowly.

    Now he has a bunch of little crystals. I had a rack in the back garden area that showed crystals on the surface. My grandkids liked it so they got a hammer and chipped away at it until half the boulder was gone. I didn’t care and they had fun collecting the crystals.

    One time I gave my wife a geode that was ten million and one years old. Apologies to Jason.

    It could be worse. I could have been the lamp from “A Christmas Story”.

    Just like my lab instructors when I was running the biology teaching collection. “The students broke that one — can we have another?…”
