Help me with the question.

Are you asking if you can tell that they are one without "cracking" it open? Or do you what to know what tell may look like inside?

How to tell if it is a geode - be pretty hard to tell what is inside

Have to ask--- you would be surprised.

Off hand the simplest way is to compare weight to same size rock you know to be solid. This gets tricky if it is a thunder egg.

Find someone with a large collection--- handling them and seeing them upclose tunes your eyes and brain.

I knew a guy in GA who could spot them in a creek bed while walking at a brisk pace. I tried hard to learn his tricks but it still comes hard to me.

BTW--- crack it open! By crack I mean crack not smack with hammer or cut with saw. Probably good sources on the net.
