Information

A piece fulgurite in a beautiful collector's box.

Creation by lightning

fulgurite is a hollow glass tube of molten sand caused by a lightning strike. The heat from the lightning melts the sand and forms a tube. It is also known as petrified lightning because fulgurite hardens in the shape of the thunderbolt.

Hollow in the dunes

This piece comes from the Sahara and is found in a hollow dune. Fulgurites occur almost always in hollows and not, as you would expect, on the dune tops. That’s because in the desert Lightning usually strikes in places that are closest to groundwater.

Size of the collection box

The collection box has a size of 5.8 x 3.8 centimeters and 1.6 centimeters thick. The inside is provided with a foam layer. You’ll always receive comparably content in the boxes.
