Check Out These Stunning Artist-Created Giant Geode Pieces

Geodes, with their vibrant colors, shiny crystals, and elaborate designs, are the glam stars of the mineral world, but it takes the perfect confluence of events and time for nature to create these beautiful rocks. That’s why if you’ve ever tried to buy one for your desk or bookshelf you know they aren’t cheap. But now there’s another way for you to decorate your home with Earth’s most fabulous natural occurrence, thanks to one artist who is making wall art inspired by geodes that is so gorgeous it’s hard to tell them apart from the real thing.

This video from Art Insider features the work of artist Stephanie Walberer, a.k.a. Mrs. Colorberry, who says she was inspired to paint her one-of-a-kind art after seeing all of the “sparkling” minerals at a mineral exhibition. Using resin mixed with colors and glitter, she sketches the shape of her piece, pours the paint by hand, uses a heat gun to get rid of air bubbles and create realistic details, and then adds crystals before drawing in other details. The entire process can take her a month, but the end result is more than worth it.

Um, we obviously love these pieces and her geode tables too, but we’re also intrigued by another idea she mentioned here: Can she….can she make us geode shoes?

Because we could use a little bit more pizzazz in our daily wardrobe, and there’s nothing more glamorous than a geode–both the rocks and the works of art.

What other creation from Mother Nature would you love to see replicated by an artist? It would rock if you told us your best ideas in the comments below.
