Dwarves' Earth Treasures Museum:
Queens Point Thundereggs
Wildcat Mountains, Central Oregon
.
     I have not visited Oregon yet so I do not know that much about so many thunderegg deposits around Oregon. The Queen Point site is one of several sites around Wildcat mountain that produces thundereggs. I think it's one of those beds that are getting exhausted. The thundereggs are mostly small with quartz cores, but the agates with shadowing effects have been found in some thundereggs. My prized specimen would be one with dentritic taking on an image of "Polar Express" train coming out of winter fog along the snow.

Rough Appearance: Small with raised ridges, sometimes wtih greenish tint.
Mostly quart core, but can come with banded agates sometimes with shadowy effect.

Look at the dentrities along waterlines of the left pair.
I call it "Polar Express" train. It looks like the train's
emerging out of winter fog along snow.
