Hey guys, I am a glass blower by trade and a member of a glass forum. Somebody posted a thread about fulgurite, that we were discussing (I have a piece of fulgurite from a strike on a sage bush in Bend, Oregon), when a member posted this. It is some man made fulgurite made from colored borosilicate glass, believed to be the first and only of it's kind.

It was made by filling a tube with crushed glass and connected to a rocket which was fired into the storm. Enjoy!
