This dark fulgurite from Italy has many interesting features and is an all-natural glass tube. You can see through it side-to-side and marvel at its stretched internal glass that is interwoven at both ends of this glass tube. It's unusual shape and its intriguing form have caused it to be named "Dark Star."
In astronomy a dark star is is thought to be made out of the same type of chemical elements as regular stars - hydrogen and helium. The dark star is however something different energy wise, as it is powered by dark matter annihilation rather than fusion.
This fulgurite has a gaseous, stellar-like shape as its outer area appears bubbly with mottled, multiple protuberances. This is very similar to what regular stars look like in the night sky, with a telescope.
Size of fulgurite: 1 3/4" L X 1 5/8" W X 1 1/8" D; Ships in a protective case with Certificate of Authenticity, information about this fulgurite, tag and tag stand, artist tack for positioning and acrylic base. Photo cube not included.
