Drusenborn Thundereggs

Known as one of the top Thuringian locations for crystal, the name itself means Crystal's Birthplace (drusen = druse or drusy, a common term for quartz). However, the location is tiny - just a 3x3 metre patch of ground close to a forest road, which is why their impressive characteristics are matched by their rarity! The most common appearance for these is a large crystal geode, often with thin bands of white agate. Indeed, looking at the matrix and the formula for these, i am left with the impression that if you took the usually small Spießberg thundereggs and inflated them like a balloon, you would end up with very similar result! However, there is one crucial difference, and this is where the magic of Drusenborn really lies. Agate is rare in these, beyond the most basic thin decayed layer - but when you do find it you get something that is almost unheard of is Spießbergs - colour. Rather than waffle on about it here, just take a look below. But anyway - whether or not you are lucky enough to find a colourful solid agate specimen, these are magnificent stones - probably one of Thuringia's best.
