This is a beautiful "fractal tree" fulgurite with multiple arms from New Zealand. This lightning sand glass tube has a prominent hole at the top and bottom with the interior lined with smooth glass. This type is the "rarest of the rare" for fulgurites as it is predominantly a grayish white with a sprinkling of dark colored sand grains. Being multicolored makes it more fascinating and unique.
Fulgurite lightning sand is made by a bolt of lightning piercing the sand and as it grounds it way into the earth a hollow, glass-lined tube is formed. Few have multiple fusions like this one that have an actual "fractal tree" appearance.
Often referred to as “fossilized lightning,” this is the real stuff talked about in the Hollywood Movie "Sweet Home, Alabama."
Size: 2 1/8" H X 1" W X 1/2" D, Location found: New Zealand. Ships with Certificate of Authenticity, tag, tag stand, plexiglass base, information about fulgurites and protective case with jeweler's tack for positioning. Photo cube not included.
