This fulgurite lightning sand tube is a large, premium specimen from Florida. It's shape reminds us of a "Hula Dancer" with its wavy, curvy features and frilly-like draped exterior.
The name “fulgurites” is derived from the Latin word fulgur, meaning “thunderbolt.” Often referred to as “petrified lightning,” fulgurites are naturally hollow glass tubes with beautiful glass often lining the interior of the tubes. Lightning bolts reach temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun.
Fulgurites are the subject of lore and make great friendship, romantic, and glass art sculpture gifts. This one has many defining features with its curved edges and shapes and easily visible holes at the top and bottom that the lightning traveled down through to create it. It is a premium specimen because it has great character, color, texture and form.
