I thought about getting some layers of colored sand in the bucket (if I can ever get my wife to let me get my stuff set up again, she's chicken).
Would the the first banded multi color fulgurite in the world, I bet they'd go on ebay like hotcakes LOL.
Be careful taking it out of the bucket, length of the fulgurite DRASTICLY effects its value, and they are like thin hollow tubes of glass.

Surely we can put the energy of lightning to some use, right?
I've always figured I should harnass lightning and store its energy..but there are always problems with capacity and controlling the distribution...
What if you just used raw lightning as the fabrication energy, and constructed 'molds' to transform various materials into various shapes? Not just limited to pieces of wire..but other things...
