Fulgurite Lightning Sand Glass Tube "Aladdin's Lamp"
This fulgurite lightning sand is a premium specimen from Australia. It has four prominent holes and constantly looks like it is trying to balance its size and form, so we named it "architect." The images were taken of this fulgurite in two different positions, so it is easy to see its four different naturally made holes.
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, left and right that the lightning traveled down through to create it. It is a premium specimen because it has great character, color, texture and form.
