Rose Quartz Geode - Druzy Cabochon | What is Druzy? Druzy crystals take hundreds or even thousands of years to form. They form as molten rock begins to cool with trapped gases inside. The gases cause gaps in the rock. As groudwater flows through these gaps for century after century, minerals crystalize on the rock--forming a blanket of intense crystalization.

Aphanitic Volcanic Bomb. A volcanic bomb found in the Mojave Desert National Preserve. The smooth texture of this basaltic volcanic bomb is aphanitic. A volcanic bomb is a mass of molten rock (tephra) larger than 64 mm (2.5 inches) in diameter, formed when a volcano ejects viscous fragments of lava during an eruption. They cool into solid fragments before they reach the ground. Because volcanic bombs cool after they leave the volcano, they do not have grains making them extrusive igneous rocks.
