I have finally uploaded three First Creek specimens to the Washington State section of the gallery. This is an obscure but very interesting location producing relatively large eggs with a distinctly elongated and sometimes lens-shaped appearance. The cores tend not to contain fancy agate, but a complex blend of minerals, sometimes very attractive in an earthy way.

As a prelude to a major update that I really must do soon to the Washington State thundereggs, here is a curious specimen that I recently came across. Onion Ring formations, where the rock splits into very fine layers are quite common in a few specific locations (Lierbachtal and Esterel spring to mind – and, interestingly enough, the British t-eggs from Sadgill) but in thundereggs as a whole are very rare. Here though is an onion ring specimen from Naches River Bed 1 in Washington State – a lovely pale specimen with cloudy waterline agate.
I have several new locations to launch on the gallery from Washington – including more from the Naches River – so I hope I will find time to do that soon!
