Product Description

Fulgurite Lightning Sand Lechatelierite Swirling Glass Tube
The swirling natural sand grain pattern appears as if it was being pulled upwards when the lightning formed this unique glass tube.

Fulgurite lightning sand is so awesome - because it was created by one of nature's most powerful events, lightning striking sand! Not only has it been the theme of a romantic Hollywood movie, but the textures and form of this "fossilized lightning" can vary in appearance and form, depending on where it is found. Often referred to as lechatelierite, these naturally woven sand grains were seared onto a glass tube made by a lighting bolt striking sand. The event that formed this geological wonder was a bolt hotter than the surface of the sun!
