Have you ever heard of a marathon runner made out of sand? It may sound like something out of a fantasy novel, but in reality, it is the fascinating result of one powerful force of nature - lightning. This open chamber fulgurite is shaped in the form of a marathoner - running.

Fulgurites are created from the rare phenomenon known as "lightning striking sand," which forms glass tubes and shards. It is commonly called "fossilized lightning." It has captured the attention and curiosity of scientists, artists, and storm enthusiasts alike. Fulgurites were made famous by the Hollywood movie "Sweet Home, Alabama." The unique and intricate shapes make for stunning art pieces, suitable for desks, and other display locations.

This fulgurite's interior is easily seen, as it is an open chamber with the front missing to reveal its exotic glass interior. Its colors are a mixture of black, gray, and white. The grains in the once-hot flowing glass are beautiful, with a "bushy" back with clumps of nature-stacked and welded sand grains.

Size of Marathon Runner: 3 1/8" L X 1" W X 5/8" D, This fulgurite is from Italy. It is the only one like it that we have ever seen.

Marathon Runner ships in a protective riker case (size: 4 1/2" X 5 1/2" X 3/4") with a Certificate of Authenticity, tag, tag stand, clear plexiglass riser with artist tack and information about fulgurites. Photo cube not included.
