Agate Geodes appear as brown, grey and black. They are also called Thunder Eggs. When the geode isn't completely filled with chalcedony then a space will remain where other silica based crystals can grow. When that occurs there will be agate geodes with such crystals as Amethyst, Citrine and Rose Quartz growing inside.
An Agate Geode draws negativity, pain and energy blocks out of the body, house, aura and environment and once cleaned places it into the earth.
This is a good tool for healers as the negative energy doesn't hang around.
