AMERICAN SONORAN DESERT

These fulgurites were found by a meteorite hunting prospector in the desert of La Paz County, Arizona. Even though they are nearly pure sand, ends show evidence of a lightning strike.

BOULDER, Colorado  SOLD OUT

The fulgurites pictured directly below are from Boulder Canyon, Boulder County, Colorado. All are a solid type of fulgurite. Though not a likely fulgurite producing area, Colorado does receive a fair  share of lightning strikes. In this instance sufficient sand was available to create a few fulgurites. There is evidence of branching and all have a few unmelted stones adhering to the specimen. Please order by number.  

KERMIT, Texas  SOLD OUT

The fulgurites from the Kermit, Texas, area are similar in appearance to the fulgurites from Egypt. Most are exquisite hollow tubes; however, a few are partially sealed. The coloration is somewhat lighter than the Egyptian counterparts. Please order by specimen number.  

PANTANO, Arizona  SOLD OUT

QUARTZITE, Arizona

Here is another interesting location - Quartzite, Arizona. These small specimens are partially hollow and have good shapes. They average 1-2 cm in length and are perfect examples for "show and tell" presentations on fulgurites.
