However, inside this rough stone egg is truly like an amazing crystal cave! Amethyst geodes are some of the most beautiful objects on earth. Sunlight shining on them is dazzling. They were also called 'dragon treasures' in Eastern Europe, because when they cut open or broken apart the eggs - they revealed sparkling crystal gemstones. Most geodes contain clear quartz crystals, while others have purple amethyst crystals, which is the most popular. Most orange Citrine geodes are formed by heat treating purple Amethyst. Still other geodes can have agate, chalcedony, or jasper banding or crystals such as calcite, dolomite, celestite, etc. Crystal geodes are also known as Eagle stone, echites, aetites, and the potato stone - probably from its rough appearance before the inner beauty is revealed.
