Unbelievable Mexican Butterfly Wing Thunderegg

What can I say? When I saw this one my jaw dropped. I never expected a thunderegg to end up quite so colorful - and of course, it is colorful in the area that always gets me the most - the Matrix. The contrast between the cloudy sky of the agate and the gorgeous jasper-like matrix is quite stunning. These come from near Mazatlan, in Mexico but for some reason, they are not at all easy to find outside the country. Certainly this is the only specimen I have ever seen a picture of. It is a favorite material for the cabbers - depressingly enough. Chop up a thing like this into cabs? That almost hurts!!
