Crystal encrusted find

  1. It appears to be a geode with secondary and tertiary growths of quartz. I don’t see fossil. It is very similar to Mississippian geodes of neighboring states.

    I agree. I have a couple geodes that look much like this inside.

    I live in Michigan, and hunt geodes since I was a child. It appears to me a geode.
