Geode

Volcanic geodes are formed by cooling lava. Sedimentary geodes are formed underwater, possibly when sediments collect around the lifeless body of a sea animal. When the animal decays, it creates a cavity.

Both sedimentary and volcanic geodes need just the right combination of water, chemicals, and pressure to produce the crystals inside.
