The miners had no idea they were going to discover this beautiful geode; in fact, they were having trouble starting the excavations. “We were opening the mine to work normally,” said Marcos Lorenzelli the director of Uruguay Minerals. The land was difficult to work and employees even joked“ We have to find something amazing due to the hard work we have to do here. ". Their patience and hard work was rewarded with this once in a lifetime discovery!
