The word 'geode' derives from the Greek term 'Geoides', which means earth-like. Geodes are very grounding and balancing crystals. When placed in your home, they create a flow of energy which aids in calming the mind, and also helps with harmony and creativity. You may find that meditative practices such as meditation, yoga, or just relaxing become more effective with a geode nearby. Geodes can also assist in creating better moods and energies, and they promote balance and well-being.
