Fulgurite is a form of fused quartz, and is a very special and unique glass, formed by a lightning strike onto sandy soil or sand. There is an enormous release of energy into the area where the strike occurs, so hot that the sand is instantly melted. This melted piece forms a glass tube where the lightning passes through the middle of the melted material. It is this tube that is the basis of what creates the power, that is the basis of why you might choose to use this unusual stone. These stones embody the powerful energy of lightning within them, that was infused into the stone at the time of the event which caused their creation. This energy makes Fulgurite stones powerful manifestation tools. A common use for Fulgarite is for manifesting through the power of prayer. By praying fervently and then blowing your prayer out, through the center of the stone, to the universe, many people believe that this is amazingly effective to manifest. Its energy forms an energetic bridge between your thoughts and those of the Divine Mind, and it flows in both directions. It is therefore a stone to aid en-light-enment, as through the bolt of light-ning we receive this Divine light.
