Product Description

Fuluarite forms when lightning strikes sand, electrons flow outwards; It fuses some types of sand. It is a natural tube of glass formed from a lightning strike. The shape is similar to the shape of a lightning bolt as that shape dispersed in the ground. These are longer 2 1/4" to 2 3/4" specimens of Fulgurite. It is almost as rare as gold. These are from Morocco. The Sahara desert once had lightning, and these formed then. Fulgurute is formed when lightning strikes sand . The intense heat from the lightning, (over 3000 degrees f ), melts the sand in its penetrating path and it quickly cools into a natural partially hollow glass tube called a FULGURITE. It is sometimes referred to as petrified lightning. It can occur all over the world. The color of fulgurites varies depending on the composition of the sand that formed it. These from Morocco and have a brownish color. Fulgurites can form at deep penetrations, sometimes appearing up to 15 meters (49 ft) below the lightning-struck surface. It is typically found in sections measuring only a few inches. In southern Morocco, the annual winds shift the sand dunes and reveal protruding sections of the fulgurites, which are sifted from the sand using screens. Because the fulgurites from this location formed long ago, the hollow tubes are often partly impacted with the hardened sand. This item is said to be as rare as gold. Some believe it has metaphysical properties. Here are some concepts: Fulgurites are high energy formations do to the nature of their creation. It is said that they are particularly noted for their ability to channel and direct energy.

My son requested Fulgurite as a Christmas present and I thought to myself, where an earth am I going to find that? I was surprised to find a reasonably priced specimen on Amazon and received it two days later with prime shipping. Go figure!

As is indicated in the description, it is a small specimen, just over two inches long but it comes with a description card and in a standard box. Not beautifully presented but nice enough.

I'm very pleased with what I received.

I bought a piece of this fulgurite for my son after a tree on our property was struck by lightning. It is fascinating to see and hold in one's hand and to think about the mighty strength of nature.

It was exactly what i expected, and the package it came in ensured that it never could have broken en route. It also came with a nice little card explaining what fulgurite is and where it's found.

This did not feel like lightning glass / fulgurite. It could have been anything, i.e. sandstone, fossilized camel droppings, etc. The product needed a Certificate of Authenticity.
