Also known as Thundereggs, are crystalline formations that occur when gas bubbles in molten lava solidify on cooling.
Thundereggs are nodule like rock . Spherical objects which form in some types of silica-rich volcanic rocks (e.g. rhyolites). As volcanic lava cooled, trapped steam and other gasses formed an expanding bubble. Silica and feldspar often crystallize around the bubble or grow crystal fibers which radiate outwards from its center. These mineral filled bubbles with a radiating structure that has a center of chalcedony which may have been fractured followed by deposition of agate, jasper or opal, either uniquely or in combination.
