Mexican “Coconut” geodes are mined in a two square mile area up to 200 feet below the surface about 150 miles south of El Paso, Texas in Chihuahua, Mexico. These particular geodes frequently contain colorful interiors that range from a clear/light blue quartz to a smoky, brown, lavender, and 5% contain medium to dark purple amethyst quartz crystals. Additionally, calcite and goethite are also found in about half of these geodes and 5% contain white feathery mordenite. Numerous additional micro-sized iron and manganese-based minerals are also present in these geodes. All of the geode pairs on this page have either been cracked open with a soil pipe cutter or cut/polished (please see item description for more details). For the price listed you will receive both halves as shown. If you would like to open your own Mexican “Coconut” geodes, please visit our Whole Mexican Coconut Geodes page.
