They were collected in the Nevada desert. They are hard, appear to be calcite, but I have no confirmation on this. I crushed one while in the field, and they are very thin-shelled, reminiscent of an eggshell. They were just laying scattered in the desert amidt rounded pebbles on a sandy soil. They were reasonably common in that area.
