Sawing Geodes

In sawing geodes or agate-filled ndules, first look for the largest dome on the specimen. This done is in the upright position when the specimen is forming. Saw through this largest dome, and it is likely you will expose the best "picture" or surface. If the specimen is elongated or egg-shaped, saw lengthwise in order to obtain the best exposure.
