Fulgurite (with embedded porcelain)   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 ground fulgurite is unusual.  It is a chunk of a larger section, naturally broken off and exposing an area of melted antique blue and white china!  The china would have been buried in the ground at the strike site and is now completely melted into the fulgurite’s body.  There were only two specimens from the occurrence like this.  The surface of the piece has numerous small shards of shale and other stones up to 2.9 cm melted onto it.  This is one of the more unusual fulgurites to be created at the occurrence.  $195
