Product Description

Fulgurite "Skeleton Key" Lightning Sand
This is such an amazingly different lightning sand fulgurite glass tube that we named it "Skeleton Key." When held up to the light, it is so porous and so glassy that you can see almost completely right through it - the glass is that thin!

So why the name Skeleton Key? It has so many holes and variations of porosity that it is very similar to one. Out of about 1,000 fulgurite tube you "might" find 1 like this that has actually survived being out in the elements, without disintegrating. It is just that special!

The color of this fulgurite is white with only a very few speckled black grains.

Size: 3 " L X 3/4" W X 1/2" D. Location: New Zealand

Fulgurites are naturally created by the heat of a lightning bolt, hotter then the surface of the sun fusing sand into a tube-like form. This lightning sand glass is just like out of the Hollywood movie, "Sweet Home, Alabama," only it is the real, all-naturally made stuff!

Lore of fulgurite lightning sand promotes: Good Luck, Hope, Success, Motivation, Encouragement, Enthusiasm, Insight, Inspiration, Serendipity, Creativity and a Renewal of Spirit.

Ships in a display case with Certificate of Authenticity, information about fulgurite lightning sand, tag, tag stand, and acrylic base included. Brass caliper display base not included, but easy to find. Photo cube not included.

This "Skeleton Key" lightning sand fulgurite would make a great gift for good luck, success and motivation - as, according to lore, it turns the key and opens the door to new beginnings.
