Product Details

Lightning Dig Kit w/Fulgurite
by Dr. Cool

In this shockingly unique kit, you'll be able to excavate a pair of real fulgurites. Valued by scientists the world over because of the clues they're capable of providing about plant life at the time of a lightning strike, these tube-shaped, hollow objects are rare specimens that would make a great addition to anyone's collection of rocks and minerals. The hands-on kit comes complete with a digging tool, a small brush, and a magnifying glass to allow you to see details close-up. It also includes two booklets: one is a full-color information booklet that tells you all about fulgurite, how it is formed and its different types, while the other is an activity booklet that contains 10 fun and exciting games, puzzles and challenges.

From the Latin word fulgur, which means lightning, fulgurite is formed when lightning melts the silica in the sand or soil that it strikes. They are also capable of being produced when high voltage electrical cables touch similar surfaces. Their root-like structures are formed because they take on the shape of the lightning as it continues its path through the ground.
