FULGURITES

What is a Fulgurite?
Fulgurite is created when lightening strikes soil or sand or rock and creates a root like object as the superheated lightning channel fused desert sans into glass tubing.
The power and heat of the lightening strike fuses the soil into solid rock, often with a hollow glassy core. Most available Fulgurite is formed from sand and small rocks and the specimens are sometimes small, fragile and rather uniform and other times larger 1” to 2”diameter varying lengths and shapes The fulgurite fans out from the point of impact, repeatedly splitting and forming ever smaller branches, just like the roots of a tree.
The following items are from a unique find. A woman saw a tremendous lightning strike in a riverbed on the east side of Tucson, Arizona, later she excavated the strike site, now some of these unique pieces are available to the collector through this web site and our shop. Take a good look the pictures tell all.
