Fulgurite - Famous "Darwin" Pernanbuco
Gray-ish Tan from Pernambuco, Brazil
This fulgurite was found along the coast of Brazil, called Pernanbuco. Charles Darwin walked along this same shore of Pernambuco, Brazil, in August of 1836, during the historic voyage of the Beagle. History indicates that he might have found some fulgurites along this same coast, as he was an avid collector of geological specimens, as well as biological. Geology was actually Darwin's "principal pursuit" and his notes on the subject were copious, almost four times larger than those of his zoology notes.
Even though it is uncertain as to what these objects were during his time - they are interesting geological forms and a testimony to the incredible power of lightning.
