Fulgurite Lightning Sand Fractal Tiny Tree
This is a beautiful "Tiny Tree" lightning sand fulgurite, from Florida.
Most fulgurite lightning sand this small is ever recovered as it is fragile and rarely found. This type is the "rarest of the rare," in fulgurites. Bushey "hands," fractal look.
Fulgurite lightning sand is made by a bolt of lightning piercing the sand and as it grounds it way into the earth a hollow, glass-lined tube is formed. Most fulgurite lightning tubes found are either straight, bent, zig-zag or left. Few have multiple fusions like this one that formed a "tree."
This is the real stuff talked about in the Hollywood Movie "Sweet Home, Alabama."
Size: 1 1/2" Long X 1/2" Wide X 1/2" Depth
Ships with display case, label, Certificate of Authenticity, attractive acrylic 2" beveled display stand and information about fulgurites.
