Fulgurite Lightning Sand Glass Lined Large Chard
Fulgurite Lightning Sand Glass Lined Large Chard, Tasmania
Fulgurites are probably the most interesting geological specimens in the world. They have captured the imagination of Hollywood movie makers and have created a nostalgia of romance, imagination and charm.
Each is unique and no two are the same in color, grains or size. Lightning bolts strike the surface of the earth somewhere every day. It is estimated that only a small portion of them create this beautiful fulgurite lightning sand. Often referred to as "fossil lightning" these specimens are a testimony to the power of lightning, hotter then the surface of the sun!
The color of this fulgurite is white to gray, with brownish-orange additionally on the back. It is exquisitely and prominently draped in the front with evident natural glass that almost seems to make it look like a melting ice sculpture. Its natural beauty is evident, pronounced, and rare. There are not many chards that look as fantastic as this one!
