25 Million Years in the Making | Cutting Open Agatized Coral Geodes Reveals BEAUTIFUL Agate
In this video we are cutting open Agatized Coral Geodes from the Miocene period of South Georgia and North Florida. Around 25 Million Years ago this entire area was under a shallow saltwater sea. Rivers and creeks in this area can erode away the land down to the ancient ocean floor. This exposes these prehistoric coral reefs where we find the agatized coral. The geodes are formed as groundwater percolates through the coral and fills the voids with minerals that, over time, form the stunning botryoidal (bubbly) agate formations. Hope you enjoy the video! Thank you for watching!
