The rock gets its name from the repeating gray pattern that sometimes looks like a mass of growing mushrooms. The formation is an atypical thunderegg formation where most of the thundereggs did not completely form. The thunderegg started to form, stopped and started again forming the gray overlapping shapes in the rhyolite. In certain areas a reddish halo surrounds the outside of the gray massive thundereggs providing a colorful contrast on the rock. Outside the reddish halo the host rock can be a greenish color and when it is hard enough provides a gray, red and green color combination that is very attractive.
