Fulgurite History Mythology History: Lightning strikes the sand long ago in Morocco. The intense heat from the lightning, (over 3000 degrees f ), melts the sand in its penetrating path and it quickly cools into a natural hollow glass tube called a FULGURITE. They are sometimes referred to as petrified lightning. Of course, along with lightning, fulgurites occur all over the world. The color of fulgurites varies depending on the composition of the sand they formed in. These from Morocco have a brownish color.
Fulgurite can have deep penetrations, sometimes appearing up to 15 meters (49 ft) below the lightning-struck surface. They are typically found in sections measuring only a few inches long. In southern Morocco, the annual winds shift the sand dunes and reveal protruding sections of the fulgurites, which are sifted from the sand using screens. Because the Fulgurites from this location formed long ago, the hollow tubes are often partly impacted with the hardened sand Fulturies are natural glass, usually tubular, formed by lightning strikes in sand or rock.
Legend says that if you have a hollow Fulugrite and hold it up to the moon and make a wish through it releasing it to the universe, your wish will come true.
