Dawg meet immovable object.

Had a 20 - 40 lbs amethyst geode sitting on the patio table for a couple of months in the back yard. Meant to clean the thing up and bring it in once I had a place for it.

Now I'll have to find places for them as it is now broken into about a dozen pieces. DAWG tried to get between a plant pot and said table at a high rate of speed, wobbled the table and the geode fell to the concrete, shattering. You know I never considered it to be a large thing, but it sure was dense (heavy).

On the plus side the thing won't be as unwieldy as it was.

I suppose I should be grateful the big goof wasn't hurt when it fell. I've carried that thing around with me for nearly 30 years without incident aside from the occasional strained muscle from moving the heavy fucker...

Funny, I have one of them, not as big, which 'fell off its perch' and now has a damaged corner and I have a few more stones...

have not worked out what to do with the thing yet.

But it was a pity. A pity about your's too, especially as you have had your's so long!

Now go and smooch that dawg :)

It's like having kids! Nothing is safe around THEM. As you say, it's no use having anything good around them. I became resigned to that...but it had/has its compensations :)

I don't "smooch" that Dawg. Nor do I let him smooch me...

Wow! The beauty within!
I love geodes

Crystals contain so much energy, maybe they spoke to Dawg and said, "hey can you let us have some sunlight?"

Bummer it broke since you've had it so long, but now there is more to love <3

Paid big money for it long ago...

Think I bought it at the Texas Renaissance Festival when I used to work there.
