I love crystals and especially geodes, so how could I pass up the chance to turn some empty egg shells into crystal filled geodes. I saw it here at http://www.marthastewart.com/343344/crystal-egg-geodes. Well, I couldn’t resist, so I started gathering supplies and ran into one problem. Where to get Alum in bulk? A 1 oz. jar for $4 is just too much for my budget. I finally found a 1 pound bag at a place called Allyson’s Pantry (http://www.alisonspantry.com/ ) here in Utah ($6.00 for the bag). There are other places that have it on line. I am excited to show you how to make Crystal Egg Geodes, so let’s get started.
1 empty (blown) egg shell
Alum (6+ Tbs. per color)
2 plastic or glass cups
Easter egg dyes (you choose what type, I paid $.99 for 6 pellets)
1 cup very hot water
2-3 cup size bowl
Rubber type gloves (to keep your hands from being dyed)
