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.
Overall Measurements: 9.44 x 5.51 x 3.54 inches (24 x 14 x 9 cm) and weighs 32.9 ounces (932.62 grams)
Offered at no reserve.
Provenance: Ex. Richardson Fulgurite Collection
