The endless parade of new German thunderegg locations still shows no sign of stopping – and they are every bit as confusing as ever with uncatalogued location clusters, things turning up in rivers, new discoveries and old ones …
Here’s a run-down of new locations on the gallery, beginning with Saxony.
This is a Minkwitz egg. The gallery has presented the vein agate form from this location for a while – here though is the other, nodule form.
And onwards into the heart of the t-egg storm – Thuringia:
All this time, I regarded Spießberg as a ‘location’ – but no, that would be too easy. Apparently there are many locations around there, of which the classic white agate specimens are just one. This is another – though who knows which bed it’s from!
Another from the Spießberg area – more specifically from the Rennsteig hiking trail. A new find and one of the most beautiful new things to come out of Germany in a while.
This is a Körnberg thunderegg – from “a higher mountain behind Gottlob”. Not to be confused with Kornberg and Komberg eggs of course …
An incomplete Lippers specimen with a very interesting plated core.
This is Manebach – a location that is very hard to get out without breaking them.
And lastly, this is a Kniebreche thunderegg, which also solves an old unknown mystery that’s been on the gallery for a while …
So there you have it. The Germany page is getting so large i might have to split it up at this rate – and also should find some more sensible way to organise it all. But that’s for the future. In the meantime, I have no doubt the locations will keep coming!
