Product Description

Lichtenberg Figure Round Dome Shaped with Base
Lichtenberg Figure Round Domed Shaped with Base

Lichtenberg Figures are branching, tree-like fractal patterns created when high voltage electrical discharges are beamed through clear acrylic bases. As power from a linear accelerator (LINAC) beams its high-energy electrons traveling at near the speed of light, they tumble and cascade through the acrylic material creating tree-like fractal patterns. The zig-zag discharge paths are "frozen in time" and can be easily seen using LED colored, lighted bases. The first Lichtenberg were discovered by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799) and were two dimensional.

This round domed shape Lichtenberg figure is 2 1/2" diameter and 1 3/4" high. The base is 3" square and has three LED light colors: red, blue and green. As the lights change between settings they do produce intermediate colors as well. The base has an on/off switch and uses 3 AA batteries. The base does have an outlet for a powered adaptor. Batteries and adaptor not included.

These fantastic Lichtenberg figure art forms are used for room accent decor, novelty gifts, offices, libraries and more.

This Lichtenberg figure ships with the square base that contains 3 LED lights, a detailed information sheet about Lichtenberg figures and the process used to create them, and an additional free circular walnut base for simple displaying.

Lichtenberg figures offer great entertainment and enjoyment as unique science gifts and artistic novel objects for home decor, office, studios and more!
