Vad du kommer att göra

Private tour of a working lapidary where you get to experience the thrill of picking out your own geode and having it cut by one of "The Geode Guys" on wet diamond saws. Each experience fee includes 2 Geodes per person ($50 value) as well as the opportunity to have them cut by one of the expert "Geode Guys." If you prefer a more hands on approach we can score your geode and then you can crack it open yourself with supplied chisel and safety glasses. In addition to the geode selection and cutting/cracking you'll be given a tour and explanation of different types of geodes, rock saws, polishing tools, and techniques used to cut and shape different types of minerals.

The lapidary experience can be done in as quick as 30 minutes if you're in a hurry or as long as 1.5 hours if you want the whole tour or want to purchase additional geodes.
Other things to note
This is a very safe activity and no participation is required if not comfortable.

Dusty and Leo Atkinson have worked in the lapidary arts for a combined 40+ years. We are a Father son duo who create one of a kind kinetic sculptures out of rare fossils and minerals found all over the world (see our sculptures at www.StoneartstudiosCO.com). In addition to our expertise in the lapidary we are one of the most trusted sources of high quality unopened Geodes anywhere. Our lapidary is located in the workshop on our property out in beautiful Blacktail meadows behind Lake Catamount. In an effort to keep COVID-19 at bay we try to bring all saws outside in an effort to reduce congestion and encourage air circulation.

Var ni kommer att vara

Our lapidary is located in a workshop on my property out in beautiful Blacktail meadows behind Lake Catamount. Whenever possible we try and do all activities outside in an effort to Social distance and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Following the cutting will be a tour of the work shop if desired. We do have a bathroom down in the shop in case you need to use the restroom.

This tour is great if you are into all things rocks. He was extremely knowledgeable about every little thing. We loved learning about the different geodes and where they came from. He also has some really cool fossilized coral that blew my mind. I would definitely do this experience again. Thanks !!
