Thunder Dragon Claw
« on: February 12, 2012, 03:47:42 PM »
This is the center of a thunder egg... I picked this up off the ground in northern Nevada in an area where these are plentiful, we called them thunder egg yolks because the outer portion of the eggs is weathered away and just the agate center is left. This one has a bluish cast to it. The rough outer portion is still visible in spots on the finished piece. The wire is half round stainless steel with a bit of gold filled for an accent... (I am keeping this one for myself).

It's great looking and the explanation of the piece is interesting.

Really nice piece.  And how lucky you are to be able to find these rocks on the ground!  You make great use of them!!

Fossil hunting was always (still is) one of my favorite pastimes!  We've found some pretty cool ones at the lake (Lake Michigan is 5 minutes away) on the rocky beaches.

Fossils are cool! here we have fossilized shells (sometimes), petrified wood (plentiful) and whale bone (rarely) on our beaches...

==================
We get tons of fossilized shells here. No petrified wood though and I don't think we have had any whales in the lake (yet).  ;)
