Geodes are a phenomena of geology. Deceptively like a regular rock at first glance, but then when cracked open, geodes reveal beautiful quartz formations.

Get your own geode to crack open with the help of museum educators.

This free, drop-in program runs from noon to 2 p.m. No registration is necessary. Geodes will be available while supplies last.

The museum is in Elgin's Lords Park, 225 Grand Blvd. Contact the museum with any questions at (847) 741-6655 or epm@cityofelgin.org.
