How Are Geodes Formed?
Geodes, which take thousands of years to form, begin with the formation of a cavity. This cavity can be the inside of a shell that is stuck in sediment. The shell will fill with a concentration of salt. The shell can either turn into a fossil or be... More »

Different types of geodes are formed in different ways. For instance, a volcanic geode is formed by cooling lava while a sedimentary geode is formed in an underwater process where sediments attach themselves to tiny animals. You can find more information here:
