Lightning Strike Quartz

Lightning Strike quartz, can be found all over the world, but something about the quartz deposits around Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil, has causes lots of interaction with lightning. This is the only place I know of that produces many quartz crystals with the marking lift from being touched by lightning. 

The marks left by lightning show the path the electricity flowed through the crystal. It leaves behind a kind of odd fracture that flows around the outside of the crystal like a snake, often touching 3 or fours sides of the crystal and sometimes twisting around all sides of the crystal.
