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.
