I don't know about you, but I have never heard of such a thing. I thought it was an awesome find and wanted to share. Let me know if you have heard of them before or plan on trying to find some.

Aren't those geodes?

They are everywhere here, and if you ever go to Mammoth caves, there is a little shack by the road selling 1000's of them.

I have gotten them for my kids before to break open.

Oh yeah! They are still jewels of the Earth.
I love gems, crystals, geodes and all kinds of rocks. Mother Earth is pretty amazing.

If I wasn't so old, I'd ask if you'd adopt me so you could buy me some. Lol You're a cool Dad!

I have a small piece of an amethyst geode. That is a cool link you provided. Thanks!

The slices with streaks of colors can be dyed, so you have to be careful when buying them.

Yeah never heard of them referred to as 'thunder eggs.'

Used to go tromp around for geodes with Gramps when I was young. Good times.

Thunder eggs are solid on the inside, and Geodes are hollow with some crystal growth inside , both can appear in the same deposits. There are numerous places in the states they can be collected, but they are not by any means common or everywhere. Digging can vary from moderate loose soil and clay, to cemented ash that requires chisel and extreme labor. there are several in Oregon that are privately owned... which means a fee, but it's by the pound gathered and very reasonable ( and a sure thing ) whereas opal mines you pay to dig whether you find something or not, there are also known areas where it is free, but often picked over or requiring extreme digging and finding areas not dug or collected in the deposit area.

Pretty, but so unhealthy for us. I bet they taste good. Anything that's bad for us tastes good.

When I was about 10, I was playing on a pile of concrete rubble and found 2 thundereggs fused together and 2 fully intact unopened geodes. I knew what the geodes were, but had no idea what the thundereggs were and neither did anyone I showed them to. I wound up breaking them apart and eventually losing them as I didn't find them as cool as the geodes at the time.

If I only knew.

Sort of like a geode. Sometimes geodes are solid and pretty inside. But these Thunder eggs seem to have more personality to them.
