Thundereggs | A Geological Structure


A thunderegg is a sphere-like geological structure (not a mineral) which forms in lava flows. The centre eventually splits to form a cavity which over time fills with either chalcedony, agate, opal, jasper or quartz.  When the very ordinary looking outer rock is broken open it reveals minerals within a self-contained centre.
