Mixed Agate Dream Coco Trio
These three little Dream Cocos are the perfect gift for yourself or for a loved one that is in pursuit of her/his dreams. They come from Soledade, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. While they are all Agate with clear and milky quartz druse, each one has a unique shape and composition. The smallest of the three is a beautiful little dome-shape on one side and an "almost" circle on the other. She has a tiny speck of hematite found inside. There is also a beautiful teardrop shaped dream coco with sparkling clear quartz druse and breathtaking outer pattern. And one cannot forget to mention the amazing cat's eye multicolored coco. Her milky quartz druse is home to a growing patch of hematite, combining the properties of agate, quartz and hematite. For more information about hematite read Hematite Properties.
About Dream Cocos: Dream Cocos are special little geodes that love to hangout with us as we are sleeping. They are similar to the Native American 'worry dolls" in that one can place ones worries inside the dream coco before going to sleep at night. The dream coco kindly helps to clear and cleanse the fears in our subconscious mind while we sleep. They are also wonderful for the ageless dreamer or those of us working with making our dreams into our realities. The dream coco has special properties to help us achieve our dreams. Before bedtime place the dream coco under your pillow or on your nightstand and look deeply into the center. Imagine your dreams or wishes in as much detail as possible. Then place those dreams inside your Dream Coco and goto sleep. The Dream Coco will work with your subconscious as you sleep to help us bring your dreams into your reality. They are wonderful companion "for those that be believe in the beauty of their dreams." Eleanor Roosevelt
About Geodes: Geodes are more or less spherical or ovoid shaped, hollow concretions that form inside cavities in sedimentary and igneous rocks. The term geode is derived from the Greek geoides, meaning "Earthlike", a reference to their rounded shape. Geodes have long been regarded as objects of curiosity and prized for their beauty. Geodes are known from many localities around the world with some of the most prolific sources including Brazil, Mexico, Namibia and the United States. In sedimentary rocks, the cavities in which geodes form are created by the dissolution of previously existing concretions that grew within soft, unlithified sediments. After the surrounding sediments lithified, the original concretions were dissolved and carried away by the action of acidic groundwater or hydrothermal solutions permeating the more resistant bedrock. In igneous rocks the cavities are created by gas bubbles, such as vesicles in basaltic lavas that become trapped and frozen in place as the host rock cools and solidifies.
As geologic conditions change over time, mineral laden ground water or hydrothermal solutions subsequently invade the hollow cavities and deposit minerals inside them, sometimes in the form of beautiful crystals and crystal druzes. The most common mineral found inside geodes is quartz in both crystalline and cryptocrystalline form (chalcedony, agate and jasper), followed by calcite. Other noteworthy minerals found in geodes include barite, celestite, dolomite, goethite, kaolinite, millerite, pyrite, hematite and sphalerite. The size, form and color of the crystals vary, making each geode unique.
