American Geode spoke in spring of 2016 to a group of youngsters in Indianapolis, Indiana about the geodes from the Hoosier state, and the geology of Indiana, formed by the glaciers that sat atop the state during the Ice Age. Indiana geodes and Midwest minerals, gems and geodes are the specialty of American Geode. We visit rural and remote Indiana at least once a year to excavate the sedimentary geodes that washed out from the world famous limestone found in Southern Indiana.
For more information about geodes, gems, minerals and geology, please go to American Geode.
We are a source of geodes, minerals, gems, and fossils for collectors, academics in geology and paleontology, museums, and even interior design professionals. Rockhounding for unusual geodes, beautiful minerals, rare gems, and beautiful exotic crystals with positive energy keep us motivated. Some of our favorite finds are Indiana Geodes, NY Herkimer Diamonds, Connecticut Garnets, Kyanite, and Apache Peridot. We use a variety of tools for rockhounding including crack hammers, sledge hammers, demolition hammers, and 65lb jackhammers (lots of rockhound hammers) as well as diamond saws and soil pipe cutters. We enjoy researching and mining rocks and roadtrips while rockhounding across the USA.
Our Geodes are some of the finest natural Geodes on Earth. We specialize in Indiana Geodes and all Geodes are for sale and sourced directly from rockhound sites in Indiana, USA. Our Geode sizes range from 3 to 18 inches in diameter. Finding Geodes is hard work and we hand crack them to show the natural geological beauty inside these mysterious natural wonders. Hidden inside include fractal Quartz crystals, white Chalcedony, red chalcedony, blue chalcedony, Baryte minerals, Citrine, and various other favorite gems. Every cracked Geode is truly unique, collectible, and a wonder.

A Wayne County Gem and Mineral Club primary objectives is science education, in particular geology, minerals, fossils and the world around us. At GemFest the gem and mineral club provides multiple hands-on experiences for youngsters (crafts like soapstone carving, a scavenger hunt, an operating sluice to work, a 45 mineral show on fluorescent minerals, educational exhibits by club members, etc.). In addition, the gem and mineral club encourages our 15 mineral, fossil, and jewelry vendors to interact with kids who inquire about things at their booths. The goal is to mix a fun time with learning in a family setting.
This is an excellent group of skilled, knowledgable and fun rockhounds and gem, mineral and fossil professionals. Some of the best in the mineral business will be at this gem and mineral show that attracts the world class dealers and collectors, as well as academics, rockhounds, families and casual collectors.
Be sure to “tell ’em American Geode sen’cha!” The good folks at the entrance will get a kick out of hearing that you are also friends with American Geode. American Geode has spent plenty of time here in New York, on our own proprietary prospecting missions and we attest to the beauty of upstate New York, and the fun you can have at this show.
