Fulgurites are one of nature's most fascinating geological art, created by lightning strikes! When lightning hits the ground, it is so hot that it fuses everything in its path. In this case, the fused sand cooled down and hardened into a fulgurite tube.
Because of the process in which they were created, fulgurites have become subjects of beauty, sculpture, art, and romance!
Depending on the type of material that was struck, fulgurites can vary in shape from glassy tubes to smooth shards of melted sand. In addition, sand grains vary in size, color, and structure.
This dainty fulgurite has white sand grains composing the main tube, with swells of gray lobes jutting from the sides. Its shape reminds us of a ballerina pirouetting.
