I picked this up at the CVMC picnic, no location information with an odd morphology. Any idea where its from? Quartz, agate and small calcites.

The inner shape of your geode was strikingly similar to cross sections of some thunder egg centers. The dome to the bottom right is similar to the top found at the center of some thunder eggs, and the dimple at the center toward the top left like the dimples at the centers of the bottoms of some thunder eggs. Also, the four corners reach out to the edges of the geode like the outer edges of thundereggs.
I do not want to ignite the debates about the formation of thundereggs - just found the similarity remarkable.
