Have you ever wondered what the earth looks like once it’s struck by lightning? Great news! The answer is right here. Fulgurite (derived from the latin word “fulgur”, meaning lightning) is the result of lightning striking sand. The strike melts the silica (quartz) instantly and creates these natural tubes. Their shape mimics the path of the lightning bolt as it disperses into the ground. All lightning strikes that hit the ground are capable of forming fulgurites. A temperature of 1800 degrees Celsius is required to instantaneously melt sand and form a fulgurite. Carry one with you to benefit from the old wives’ tale of lightning never strikes the same spot twice!

All minerals and stones vary in size and shape. You will receive a high quality specimen of the selected item but not the exact one pictured. All minerals, gems, stones and fossils are guaranteed to be top quality; sourced from ethical vendors around the world.

All orders ship same or next business day with exception to oversized items. Those items will be identified in the description (Items such as large taxidermy, skulls or exceedingly heavy minerals).
