Rock Fulgurites For Sale

 

 

FONY-043

FONY-043      Ground Fulgurite fused on Sandstone  Oswego, Oswego County, New York.  From lighting strike on August 2, 2008, ref. Rocks and Minerals magazine, May/ June 2011 issue, vol. 86, no.3, p. 264-270.  Collected by Michael R. Walter, August 25th, 2008.   I do not referred to these as "rock fulgurites" because the are simply fulgurites that hit, or went through, rocks in the soil.  A true rock fulgurite would have hit rock directly, such as a surface boulder or exposed bedrock.  In any case it was a rare find at this particular strike and an interesting conversation piece.  Seen here is the ground fulgurite solidly fused to the edge of a smooth sandstone pebble and a second smaller one.  Again, rare at this strike because the soil where it occurred was dominated by organic material and very fine grained rock particles. I believe this is the most interesting one from the find as you can clearly see the discharge staining in gray below the primary fulgurite (see the first image for the best view of this detail).  Solidly attached.  Excellent piece.  2.8 cm.  $90
