"Fused lightning" or fulgurites, smaller
Fulgurites, or "fused lightning" from the Sahara Desert, North Africa. When lightning strikes sand, such as on a beach or in the desert, the immense energy goes into the ground, fusing the sand along its path into sand encrusted rudimentary glass, often as thin walled tubes. Mounted on gold coloured posts. These specimens, especially the one on the right, may work in 1:24 scale as well as 1:12 scale.
Centre: 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) wide, 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) deep, 11/16 inch (1.75 cm) tall.
