Call ahead before going to the mine. (217) 847-3509 It is $20 for a five gallon bucket. Keokuk geodes are some of the best and have a good range of pretty minerals inside them. Mostly they are quartz-based. For information on opening them, etc., go to http://www.mcrocks.com/images-2/KeokukGeodePage.html
The address is 823 East Country Road 1220 in Hamilton, Illinois.

I have never been to Jacobs Geodes but I have purchased many buckets of them. Very satisfied with the quality of his geodes

I disagree. I had an awesome haul from Jacob's Geodes. Remember that not every outing is going to go well.

That's too bad. Do you have a link for the webpage on McRocks? I tried to find it, but all of the reviews were really positive for Jacob's.

Keokuk geodes are among the best but Jacobs are not. Avoid. See my review at McRocks.
