The geodes, the basis of each lamp, are mined from one of the world’s largest geode beds in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains.  Each geode holds from thousands to tens of thousand of individual crystals. Geodes are formed over millions of years.  Some geodes are formed when gas gets trapped in lava as it cools, forming bubbles or pockets in which the crystals grow. Other geodes are formed within hollow areas in soil or by soil surrounding substances that later disappear due to the deterioration of the trapped substance. In both cases over hundreds of millions of years, water seeps into the hollow areas to deposit minerals that form the outer shell and crystals inside.
