This is some slices I purchased here in Portland, OR in about 1980. I finally got around to polishing one side. They polished up nicely. From the looks of them they have come from different "beds" but I do not have the bed name or location. Face Book has a group called "thunder egg enthusiast". Take a picture of yours and place in on that page and you will probably have names and more information given to you.

Many of these have curious details that cause some people to question, "How did God do that". He has made them all different to just to make us be amazed at how great and good he is to us. He knew we would marvel at his creation.

The picture color in some seems to be a little darker than what it looks like in daylight.

Some collector smay be interestedin how I sand and polish thin flat slabs.

To easily hold the slabs while I sand the chosen face, I glue a block of wood to the back of the slab. I use the white washable "School Glue". When I am finished sanding and polishing, I simply soak off the slab from the block of wood. I clean the slab and it is ready for the camera. The block of wood is cleaned, dried and ready for future use.
