Exogenic Fulgurite   From lightning strike that occurred in Oswego, New York on August 25, 2008.  Collected by Jeffery Shallit of Kitchener, Ontario and nephew and sons (Joseph, Jonah and Arlo).  Reference Rocks & Minerals magazine, May June 2011 issue, vol. 86, no. 3, p. 264-70.  This is possibly one of the most interesting fulgurites found at the site.  It measures 6.7 cm long and the tapered sphere is 1.7 cm in diameter.  Other smaller spheres are attached to this larger tapered flagellated droplet.  Most unusual is there are several filaments as attachment that protrude in opposing directions from the piece.  Very unusual!  There is a repair to the longed filament near its middle that can be seen as a slight color difference.  This repair is well done and not distracting.  The entire specimen has a glassy, high luster, finish which indicates that it was fully solidified prior to reaching the ground.  An aesthetic example that looks other-worldly.  $550
