Authentic Large Fulgurite Lightning Sand Lake Maracaibo Venezuela
Lightning sand fulgurites are among the rarest geological specimens in the world. Created by one of nature's most powerful forces, a lightning strike bolt's temperature is hotter than the surface of the sun. The sand is literally "fried" into hollow tubes as the bolt drives its way through the ground at an incredible speed. These tubes, when found, can vary in size, texture, shape and color. The fulgurites characteristics are determined by the type of sand or soil the bolt travels through, and how tightly the grains were compacted and woven into the tube by the heat of the strike.
This fulgurite came from Lake Maracaibo, in Venezuela. This region receives thousands of lightning strokes - with over 260 storm days per year! It is considered to be one of the lightning capitals of the world!
