New German Curiosities and Locations

Hirschfeld01

Hirschfeld Gravel Pit Thunderegg with a Geology from the Mügeln Area

Hirschfeld02

Hirschfeld Gravel Pit – a Somewhat Less Familiar Geology

Zeithain01

A mystery thunderegg from the Zeithin Gravel Pit, because although we know where it was found, the geology that it originated from remains completely different from all known sources, in spite of various enquiries. One of the mysteries of the gravel pits that make them so interesting.

Ochsendrehe01

A rare complete specimen from Ochsendrehe, Saxony

Sermuth

Sermuth thunderegg – a very unusual new location from Saxony, Germany.

A few New Specimens

After a long quiet time, when I have mostly been engaged in selling off some of my huge stock of eggs, I have launched a few more specimens on the gallery.

Burgstall thunderegg with an unusual pseudomorph core.

A fine Dugway thunderegg with some very delicate agate.

A more complex Donnybrook thunderegg with a fair amount going on.

Ochs Ranch / Pony Creek thunderegg – a simple but rather sweet specimen.

A specimen from one of the rarely seen non-public beds on the Richardson Ranch – this one described as a rare and small location “close to the main road”.
