2016 Trends to Watch in Jewelry + Home Decor : GEODES, Geodes and More Geodes!

When I was a little girl, I remember staring up at my father's bookshelf, wondering at the mysterious potato-shaped bookends that were supporting our family dictionary. They were rocks, to say the least. Huge chunks of ugly, sandy colored rocks sliced in two halves. On the outside, the bulbous lumps were not worth a second glance, but on the inside...how beautiful! Purple crystals bloomed in spiky clusters like other-worldly bouquets of rock candy. Each dagger was naturally ombre, changing from dark, delicious grape tones at the base to nearly translucent shades of lavender at the pointy tip. I used to take the our family treasure to school every year for show and tell, crossing my fingers in the hopes that the heavy 5lb specimens wouldn't rip straight through my vinyl Lisa Frank backpack!

As a child, I fell in love with geodes, crystals and all things gemstones. It doesn't take a fortune teller to predict the newest trend for 2016 is all about natural minerals and the gloriously underrated agate GEODE crystal. Whether in its natural state, smothered in gold, or polished to perfection, agate - a unique form of quartz, is springing up everywhere from jewelry to home dĂ©cor. Take look at some of the goodies available below and share in the comments what geode treasures you've found!
