This method will produce several pieces rather than neat halves, but kids are usually happy enough to see the sparkly crystals inside, especially if they also helped collect the geodes. There are several places to collect geodes in Arizona. The closest one to Quartzsite is near Wickenburg. When collecting geodes, look for rhyolite containing "bubbles", or small orbicular stones that look like they are about to pop out of the rock. Many times these can be freed from the rock with a small amount of effort with your rock hammer. Look on the ground for loose ones, also. Both nodules and hollow geodes are found in this location, and they range in size from pea sized to the size of a grapefruit. Sometimes you will see crystals or chalcedony squeezing out of a hole in the geode, other times they will be more difficult to spot. For more information on geodes, as well as information and maps for the collecting sites, visit Rocks In My Head. We are open at Space A37 in Rice Ranch, 605-376-8754, www. We have a nice selection of local geodes, both cut and whole, as well as books, maps, supplies, and more. AUL -H We sell U BOXES Salome High School's first semester is coming to a hault.
