Fulgurites are created by the intense heat generated by a lightning strike. When lightning hits sandy or silicate-rich soil, it instantaneously heats the surrounding material to extremely high temperatures, typically exceeding 1,800 degrees Celsius (3,272 degrees Fahrenheit). The high heat causes the sand or soil to melt and fuse together, forming a glass-like tube or structure. They often have a tubular or branching structure that follows the path of the lightning bolt. They can range in size from a few centimeters to several meters in length, depending on the intensity and duration of the lightning strike.

Natural stones may vary slightly from stated size, weight and color as shown. Picture color and clarity may vary due to different settings on monitors and mobile devices. Imperfections are a natural part of each stone’s beauty and are there for a reason. Enjoy the uniqueness of each stone.
