Default Egg Mold

I know it is a little late for this year but since Easter is here and I was wondering, after trying to use a marble mold to make an egg, if there were any good graphite (or brass) mold to make larger eggs.
This one looks like they used an extremely low quality graphite. The only other one I found was a brass mold from the UK.

Do you want them to be beads or egg shaped marbles? Perlenpresse in Germany would probably gladly make you one without mandrel slots, and make just the size you want. And if you select the shipping properly (use German post - not DHL) the shipping is really reasonable. The wait time can be a bit long is the only downside. The owner is very easy to deal with on custom items.
