When you open a Thunder Egg, you never know what you're going to get. In some recent cases, Moss or Kelp looking Agate has been the surprise inside. The upper stone is set open backed so it may be back-lit to see the Kelp-like forms while the bottom stone has fragile green details like a microscopic view.
Pink Plume Mountain
Delicate hues of pinks, coral, honey, white, and clear undulate their way through this Pink Plume Agate complete with a Druzy Quartz window. Topped like a blush sun over a warm desert landscape, a Pink Thunder Egg Agate illuminates the scene.
Marcasite and Keum Boo
Sometimes what glitters is gold. Other times, it may be Marcasite. This interesting mineral grows in crystal like forms (like pyrite) and has found its way into the Agate in such small crystals that it looks like someone dropped glitter into the stone in the sunshine. It's only fitting to add 23.5k Gold to the piece taking the sparkle and contemporary style to the maximum.
So often, the stones hold pictures or landscapes within their mineral structures. This one looked like a beach break to me with the golden sands being lapped by the sudsy white Agate. The dark shadows are actually Marcasite bands that have minute glittery metallic shine when viewed in the sun. Just like those glittery sands on the beach, this ring reminds me of standing at the lap of the surf. See More/Purchase

In these cool colors, the heat of the volcano is hidden. The top stone is Crystal Opal from Australia. Born of the perfect variables to trap water inside the solidifying silicates, rainbows are charged in the volcanic mineraloid. The bottom stone is White Chalcedony occurring with silicates cooling quickly and throwing a gentle spectrum through the stone in different light. Set in Fine silver, the Chalcedony is ‘backless’, letting the light through for ultimate color-play. More/Purchase
The top stone is amber toned Plume Agate with red linear plumes and a subtle cloud of marcasite on top that is tinted purple.

This piece is hung on a choker length, chunky black Greek Leather Cord. If you'd like to rock this (like I have a few times, couldn't help myself) hit Available Necklaces.
