Pulpi giant geode geological phenomenon goes global

PULPI’S giant geode is going global thanks to a pre-franked postcard. One side of the postal service-issued card is a photo of the extraordinary geological phenomenon while the side for writing on features a geode design and logo and a QR code which links with information on the geode website. The eight metre long, two metre high gypsum geode was discovered in December 1999 by members of the Madrid Mineralogist Group. It is the biggest geode in Europe and the second biggest in the world.
