About ten years ago at the Desert Gardens show in Quartzsite I happened on a vendor who had a number of onion bags full of what looked like little thundereggs. It learned that these little eggs were from the Baker Ranch outside Deming, New Mexico. The fellow had taken them in trade for something, and he wanted to turn them into cash quickly so I went away with a bag. I love to cut thundereggs basically because you never have any idea what is inside. That was before I was doing this for a living, and now there is a bit a potential for frustration. I still have about half the bag and every once in awhile I cut a few. Some are awesome. Some are mediocre, and some are just plain duds. Many folks just cut these type of things in half and polish them for display pieces. Not me. I slab them hoping for something we can turn into a beautiful cab. A couple of days ago the bag beckoned to me, and I responded. Here are some images of what I got. One was terrific. Three were not. I’ve got a few more picked out for tomorrow.
