Thundereggs at Mount Hay by Gayle Beveridge
Thundereggs cut to show the wonder inside at Mount Hay


Thundereggs are rocks created by ancient volcanic activity. Bubbles inside have been filled by silica. Once cut in half the thundereggs have beautiful and unique patterns.

Have you ever heard of thundereggs? Have you seen any? Where did you see them?

I hadn't heard of thundereggs before I started researching for a trip around Australia. My husband and I visited Mount Hay where we could fossick through mounds of dirt. We did a tour, saw how they polished gems and worked in pewter and after we found our thunderstone they cut them in half for us. In all a great experience.
I have never seen or heard of these before. They are amazing! At first I thought they were edible, lol.
Yes I have heard of them, and even seen some.
I saw them in a shopping centre for sale on a stall.
The one in my pic is what I saw (type) and are very lovely.
Not all are as nice, but some are quite interesting,.
I haven't heard of them. They do look cool, but also remind me of rotten chicken eggs. Just putting it out there. The one in jonaj's picture is beautiful.

Yes I have heard of thundereggs and seen them, on various overseas trips. They are fascinating, some are really quite beautiful, others a little plain.
Yes. Yes. Took son fossicking to Thunderegg Park. No luck, though! But good experience, got him a little interested in 'rocks' of various descriptions.

Some are very beautiful in their internal 'designs'. I've a small Amethyst one which looks pretty with tealight lit in it.
