These thundereggs are also known as "Highway 46" or a "Templeton" thunderegg, a major highway in the northern San Luis Obispo county of California.

The large nodule has a rich blue rhyolite shell, with porcelain pink and white on one end, the agate is finely banded and shows dramatic "Shadow" or "Parallax" agate, in the shape of a heart!

When turned, an effect is seen as "moving lines" between the tightly packed shadow agate bands.
