      Thats really cool.

      It reminds me of the scars someone gets from being struck by lighting.

      Thats a little savage, but it really does look like it

        The term "dendrite" is used for any similar pattern. I believe those are actually called dendrite scars. There is a type of lighting that is also called dendrite lightning that streaks across the sky for miles, branching out in the same pattern, just larger.

      I love that! Certainly is a conversation piece . That might be one of the neatest items I've seen . Is that a rare occurrence? Was wondering if you can only see that after you break thru the crust of the stone? Not sure crust is the correct word, lol .

        I think you got to break it to see them

      Looks like a fern fossil but it’s natural?
