An amazing new thunderegg to brighten up this rather gray and miserable day. This one I have identified as a Potato Patch West egg about as well as I possibly can identify anything without an actual tag from the finder, thanks to several different sources. This is from California and it is interesting to note that there is a Potato Patch East as well that is totally different, being a beautiful bright red.
But this specific stone – what a story it has to tell! It has been tilted in the ground as you can see from the horizontal lines going in different directions – it has been shattered and smashed and the shards entombed in yet more core growth. Look at the fragments lying suspended in the white! This was surely one shattering event, not a creep. This is surely an earthquake stone!
