Style 02 - Two Inch "Lightning Cube" Sculptures

These unique specimens are similar to our smaller 1.5" cubes, but the specimens and the internal figures, are both larger and more intricate. We carefully irradiated multiple faces (between four and six sides) with the electron beam and then discharged the specimen. The result is a series of discharges that form various three dimensional discharges inside the cube instead of a single flat 2-D layer of charge.  Most figures show discharges along six separate planes, parallel to the cube faces - a cube of lightning-like discharges within a cube. Some sculptures also show small tendrils heading towards the center of the cube. The depth of the internal discharge planes varies between 3/8" and 1/2".

The following images fail to capture the depth, clarity, and jewel like character of these gorgeous figures. When illuminated by a multicolor or white LED base, these become sparkling jewels, as the captured lightning glows from within. Internal reflections further add to the complexity and beauty of the discharges. Laser crystal art can't begin to match the exquisite detail and intricate complexity of the thousands of fractal discharges inside these sculptures. Be sure to also see our 3" Lightning Cube sculptures. Actual internal discharge patterns vary considerably between specimens, and your satisfaction is always guaranteed.

Following is a typical Style 2 sculpture on an ROT45MC rotating light base:

This particular cube used a slightly different plastic formulation which caused it to have a marked greenish tint (solarization) after being irradiated. Go HERE to find out more about what Lichtenberg Figures are and how they are created.
