Guys, we get it—rocks rock. We are no stranger to a geode here at Apartment Therapy, but the internet has officially taken it too far.

Agate + Gold

Weddings and homes have been overrun with agate and geode DIY projects (yes, we know we're guilty of it, too). Bookends, drawer pulls, table numbers, place settings... if you can dream it, it's probably already been pinned a thousand times.

Nail art

Nail art is often over the top, and that is what draws us to it. The attention to detail it must take to create geodes and agate patterns on the surface of a nail is mind boggling.

Wedding cakes

Kitchn did a roundup of these amazing confections, and no one is doubting their gorgeousness and the level of skill required to create these sugar crystal masterpieces. Some may ask why you want your cake to look like a rock, but you know what? You do you.

Kitchen counter

This kitchen redo from Kentucky-based Infistone features amethyst embedded into a concrete countertop. This Pinterest-popular image split our editorial team, with some likening it to a monster bite and worrying about constantly scraping an elbow, to some picturing it working in a super boho space, or a less-trafficked area like a wet bar.

Geode lips

That brings me to the trend that has officially put us at peak crystal—the geode lip. This super-detailed makeup art is by NYC-based Johannah Adams, and has been taking over Instagram as of late. You're not about to eat a burger in this look, but you sure will make a stunning statement.
