This authentic fulgurite lightning sand is called a “prayer fulgurite.” They are used in prayer because of their cylindrical appearance and straight open ends, which make them very suitable to be used in praying.
It is believed by many metaphysical groups that during and after prayer that by blowing through this kind of fulgurite tube that prayers are more purely cast to God, who created the fulgurite with such a powerful force as lightning.
Scientifically, fulgurites are made when lightning strikes sand, fusing it into tubes that are lined with glass. Lightning's high energy will melt or vaporize the sand and form amorphous glass.
The “prayer fulgurite” is not fragile as many other fulgurites and is suitable for more frequent careful handling.
