An unusual fulgurite with a spiral shape was uncovered during excavation of a cellar in a sandy mound in 1897. It was a fused mass about 5 inches long and thick as "a man's thumb" with embedded quartz grains.

Late Pleistocene
0.0117 - 0.126 Ma



ID: 3170996
Offshore sand

Age: Pleistocene (0.0117 - 0.126 Ma)

Description: Deposited in glacial Lake Wisconsin; generally at east several meters thick; overlain by an average of less than 1 m of windblown sand (largest dunes are 1 to 2 m high in most places); thin and patchy stream sediment and peat occur between the dunes in some places. Unit oy represents fine to medium sand that contains 1 to 10 percent non-quartz grains; deposited by water from rivers flowing over Cambrian sand and sandstone; part of the Big Flats Formation
