Ao-Long egg - Dinosaur egg, well not really.

I just found out that in fact, it isn't an "Ao-Long" egg at all. It is in fact a nodule. Its Chinese name is "tjie he". It is often used in ornamental rock displays in the oriental hobbies of "Suiseki" and "Gongshi". It's still pretty, but not as interesting to me. Not sure. Perhaps I can sell it.
