Sierra Nevada Mountains, Placer County, California, USA
From the same locality as Lot 73333, this one shows the classic branching form common for Fulgurites, with a rough exterior composed of gray, partially melted material forming a shape very reminiscent of tree roots. In fact, a small bit of a tree root is part of the surface of the Fulgurite. The interior also shows typical hollow areas, lined with 'bubbly' glass displaying various colors; although black seems to be the predominant color evident in this specimen. Branched Fulgurites are quite a bit rarer than the more usual straight variety.
