MANSFIELD, Mass. Geodes are some of the most fascinating rock formations on earth, with their ordinary outward appearance that hides beautiful, light-catching crystals within.  Hagen is bringing the extraordinary beauty of geodes to terrariums with Exo Terra’s Crystal Cave, a hideout for reptiles, amphibians and insects resembling a geode that has been sliced in half.

The crystals inside many geodes are clear or pale in color, but some of the most beautiful – and most rare – geodes contain crystals in stunning purple, green and red.  Looking just like a geode that has been opened to reveal its true beauty, Exo Terra’s Crystal Cave draws upon the rarity of red-crystalled geodes to create a truly stunning addition to any habitat.  On the outside, the Crystal Cave resembles a natural rock that would be at home in any terrarium environment, from dry and hot desert to moist and humid rainforest.  But like a real geode, the interior of the Crystal Cave is where its beauty lies, as it is covered with red drusy-like crystals that sparkle and shimmer, reflecting light in a manner similar to natural crystals.

Despite its attractiveness, the Crystal Cave is not just another pretty terrarium decoration – it’s a fully-functional hideaway for reptiles, amphibians and insects.  The large, open side is designed to be placed against the glass wall of the terrarium with the small entrance toward the inside.  This allows terrarium occupants to enter and exit the Cave with ease, while the animal’s owners can observe them while they are in the Cave, day or night.

Like other Exo Terra terrarium accessories, both the inside and outside of the Crystal Caves are made of a durable resin, so maintenance is easy.  This resin construction also makes them lightweight and easy to handle, and easily repositioned throughout the terrarium.

Exo Terra’s Crystal Cave comes in two sizes – Medium, 7.6” x 6.3” x 5.5”, MSRP $25.99; and Large 8.2” x 7.8” x 6”, MSRP $32.99.  They are available online and at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, visit, or contact the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. at 1-800-225-2700.
