Stoneridge Engineering is THE Source
for Rare and Beautiful Lichtenberg Figures!
|Magnificent 2" Thick Two Layer Museum Specimens!
huge figures were created 24 years ago using a 6 MeV pulsed linear
accelerator (LINAC) that has long since been decommissioned. The
smallest of these specimens measured 12" x 13.5" x 2"
thick, while the largest was over 17" x 17"! They were all irradiated
on two sides to create two parallel charge planes, and
carefully discharged. The high energy discharge sounded like a shotgun
The interior plane-to-plane discharges are similar to some of our
smaller Style 16 "Windblown Lightning" Figures... but on steroids! And
the one pictured below was the SMALLEST one in the group.
Unfortunately, the last two specimens were sold in June, 2009. The
pictures on this and other pages are being retained so that you can still appreciate their beauty.
Each specimen was provided with a fitted custom light base of solid walnut, beautifully crafted
and finished with natural satin lacquer with a velvet-lined cavity that snugly
cradled the specimen. Two rows of LED's illuminate the two charge
planes, one row is bright white, while the
other row is a brilliant electric blue. Because
of their size and depth, it's difficult to fully capture the detail and
these magnificent specimens.
