Baker Ranch New Mexico Thundereggs
The Baker Ranch Agate Mine (aka:The Baker Egg Mine) is located 35 miles southwest of Deming in Luna County, New Mexico. Baker Ranch is famous for its exciting colorful thundereggs unearthed here. These colorful deposits come from volcanic activity where andesite and basalt lavas with heavier minerals, which are deposited in the mix, produce the colors in agates. Most Thunderegg deposits produce blue or gray nodules. There are many agate deposits in the world that produce multicolored agates. The Baker Ranch Agate Mine is the only known location in the world with multicolored agate thundereggs. These beautiful Thundereggs are now a thing of the past as we understand there are no more thundereggs to be extracted from this site.
