Fulgurite is formed when the lightning strikes the ground. When the conditions are just right the tremendous energy from the lightning fuses the material in the ground into a primitive glass structure. This structure has the appearance of a root system. It is very similar to tree roots when in fact it is the remains of the path of the lightning as it flows through the ground. I call it ghost lightning because it is, what is no more.
These beads are approximately 19 mm long and 5 mm wide. The hole is close to 2 mm wide.
These beads are a matched set and I have tried to square up the ends to help the jeweler in their creating process.
Please be aware that these beads are a primitive glass and can be fragile if not handled properly. We will sometimes instal a center support in them to ensure that the pressures of the jewelry making process does not damage the beads.Otherwise we find them very easy to work with. The little extra work is well worth the end results.
The pair that you see in the pictures is the pair that you will receive when you order.
These Fulgurites have been recovered from the earth. They are by their nature imperfect and unique. They are of the energy of the earth and sky. Inspect the Fulgurites carefully to ensure that you receive what you are looking for.
