Smoky Amethyst Coconut Geode from Chihuahua, Mexico is cut and polished to reveal the dark sparkling beauty of the inner crystal chamber. The crystal center is encompassed by a geode structure, composed mainly of granular "rock crystal" quartz, with goethite/manganese at the rim. Of the many varieties of Mexican geodes, the ever popular "coconut" geode, as they are affectionately called, is one of the most beautiful. It seems like they have been available on the mineral market for decades, and I remember that this was one of my first beloved rocks as a child. But I never tire of seeing their hidden beauty come out.
