These are fulgurites. They are created when lightening strikes the sand. The heat of the strike causes the sand to melt just enough to form the fulgurites. I'm totally hooked on fossicking for them. This is just a few of my favourites. @jennnifffferrrr #fulgurite #fulgurites #fossicking #beachcombing #lightening #rocks #water #lakes #fossils

theaussiegardener : Awesome. I have seen how these are made in a Documentary once.
ut0piaseeker : I have some mini ones from #obx mine look different. Is it due to sand and salt water as they are from the ocean?
donothinggardener : Totally cool
sarahhope72 : @ut0piaseeker I'm not sure..there's one in the middle that looks unlike the rest. The strike was so intense that the sand melted into glass!!! It just doesn't look like a strike of lightening like the others do...can you post a pic of yours? I'd love to see them.
jennnifffferrrr : Wow!! Those are really interesting!!
jennnifffferrrr : I really need to see if this occurs in the Gulf where I live!
sarahhope72 : @jennnifffferrrr was it you saying you had some?

sarahhope72 : @stacey__evans It's funny what makes a good photo huh? These are just sitting together in a bowl amongst my craft stuff but I stare at them cos they are just so bloody gorgeous! ๐Ÿ˜Š
stacey__evans : Yes they're so beautiful! I think I have one similar to the top left one ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿš๐Ÿ’›
sarahhope72 : @stacey__evans oh really? That's my favourite!! I have another one that's three times the size. Do you know what they are? They look like fossils huh??
stacey__evans : I think they're different types of coral
stacey__evans : Haha I see you've tagged coral so you already know that!
sarahhope72 : @stacey__evans Utah I mean the one to the top left..it looks like a fossil..

I think this is where my love of #collecting all started. #fossicking when I was knee-high to a #grasshopper with my mother on front #sieve, dad in the back shuffling through the #dirt and my brother keeping an #eagleeye out for me in the middle! #scratching through the dirt looking for #jewels.
