In the region of the Asano River, Kanazawa, there are occurrences of Thundereggs (Lithophysae) which are containing mostly dark brownish grey inside less bluish grey agates. In the gravels of the river itself, there are also agate pebbles, wich have lost their Lithophysae sheathing caused by the transport in the water.
