Geode Puzzle #2581
note: We are currently only selling the larger Orbicular Geode Puzzle. Don't worry! Geode Puzzles will return at the beginning of 2019. In the meantime, if you want to buy one they are for sale at Uncommon Goods.

Geode is a jigsaw puzzle inspired by the formation of agates, a colorful banded stone. Each puzzle is unique, emerging from a computer simulation that creates natural variations in the shape, pieces, and image.

Cut style - Maze
This puzzle is cut in a dense, maze-like cut pattern. The extreme intertwining and high piece count make Maze our hardest cut style. The pieces are grown in a simulation of elastic rods. The edges grow, lengthening, until they collide, pushing each other into contorted shapes.

Artwork - Algorithmic Agate
Each computer generated image represents a slice of an algorithmic geode. Concentric layers of color radiate from the puzzle’s edge filling the surface with a banded pattern reminiscent of agate. Each band of growth exhibits slight changes in growth rate, color and character resulting in a unique pattern.

size: about 8.5”
material: 1/4" birch plywood
number of pieces: about 180 including 4 crystal-themed whimsies
