Rare Forgotten Dragon Thunderegg Polished Half
A new private claim in the Owyhee Mountains in Oregon, very close to succor creek, is named the Forgotten Dragon Thunderegg Bed. These unique eggs are characterized by a high-contrast blend of very dark matrix and white-blue-grey/pale agate and quartz. This is a brand new thunderegg bed was discovered in 2016 near the border between Nevada and Oregon. The host rock is really tough digging, but softer clay layers where these eggs are found become accessible with perseverance. We were lucky to get one of the finest and most interesting eggs we have seen in a long time. This one has the shape of a ghostly alien or monster figure with a white owl in its neck and a dragons head (or fireball) on a thin appendage…what do you see?
