"You're walking barefoot along the beach with the Ocean roaring loudly at your side. Your face is turned up to the sky, watching a storm dance above
you. As your attention is drawn back to the Ocean, you stand still to look out at the dark waves crashing towards your feet. A loud rumble of thunder resonates
around you, followed by a brilliant bolt of blue-white lightning, that strikes the sand 10 metres from where you stand. You're amazed at the intensity you
feel as you slowly wander toward the site where the lightning hit.."




Fulgurites are created by lightning striking sand with such energy that the sand is melted into a type of natural glass.They are hollow, tubelike formations
that are not true crystals.The inside is smooth, the outside has a sand texture. Fulgurites are very fragile. Many use Fulgurite as a type of
"Prayer-pipe".




Thought I'd share this with you all (I did post this at Reflections also for Owl Image"> ). I was lucky enough to come
across one last week, that has now joined our family.




Light & Love

Great post WalksWith!
My mom lives in
Florida in an area that is known for a high number of
lightning strikes. I'll have to remember to walk on the
beach the next time I'm down there and see if I can find
one.

I am sure that if we had sand in our back yard we
would have had a fulgarite made the other night. There
was a strike of lightning so close it made all of us jump
six feet. (Especially the poor cat, she is very
frightened of thunder)
How thick are
they? I think I might have seen one bfore but not
sure.

They sound beautiful. I'll have to remember to look
for them when I'm in shops that sell stones. Isn't it
amazing how things come into being through nature and the
elements? It seems Spirit is always showing us how to mix
them somehow.Blessings,

They're not overly thick Lune. Think of an
Earthworm as the size of the inside, with a sandy casing
around it. The one I have looks like the base of a tree
tree trunk with branches growing from it. Image

Greetings and Thank you!
I
thought that was a movie trick. In a love story my girls
watched the guy makes a business out of fulgurite. The
girls are still sleeping I will try and get the name of
the movie for movie buffs.
Love and
