  • Drove 2 hours to get to Richardson's after being told they were open. It was a bright and sunny day. When we got there the lady at the counter stated that it rained yesterday and she did not want my j...  more »
  • A great place to spend some time finding thunder eggs. Staff were very friendly and helpful, Not sure why other reviews said staff were grumpy. No problems here except it was almost too easy to dig up...  more »

  • They have it all! There is more rough than 10 could cut in a lifetime. You can dig high quality agate and opal thundereggs in good weather. You can also purchased them rough, cut, and polished in the store. Some are a foot wide! The owners make their own spheres. They carry a decent amount of fossils and display pieces inside. Check out their amazing personal collection. I could spend all day there. Also, their prices are very reasonable.
  • Fun family activity. The kids loved digging for thundereggs here and the drive out to the beds was beautiful. It got pretty crowded around noon, which made it difficult to find a place to dig after awhile. Luckily we got there early and were ready to head in before it got too full.
  • A great day outing. Easy digging, plus a huge collection of rock for sale.
  • Rocks n eggs nice but the owners are large turds along with son.
  • We traveled 2500 miles looking forward to doing this. It was well worth it.
