This premium large fulgurite lightning sand tube is from Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela. The Lake Maracaibo region, in Venezuela, receives thousands of lightning strokes - with over 260 storm days per year! It is considered to be one of the lightning capitals of the world!

Lightning sand fulgurites are among the rarest geological specimens in the world. Created by one of nature's most powerful forces, a lightning bolt's temperature is hotter than the surface of the sun.

This all natural fulgurite lightning sand specimen has many "lobes" with a gray to black exterior with minor white sand grains. It has a black glass lined interior with prominent hole at the top. We consider its exterior to be "exotic" as the multitude of lobes gives it a lot of character.

Size: 3 5/8" L X 1 1/2" W X 1/2" D, Weight: 10.5 grams
