Style 22 - Awesome Three Inch "Lightning Cube" Sculptures
unique specimens are similar to our smaller two inch Lightning Cubes,
specimens and captured lightning figures are significantly larger and
impressive. We started with carefully cut and polished 3 inch acrylic
These were then irradiated multiple times using a high energy
electron beam from a particle accelerator. By irradiating all six faces of the cube and
carefully discharging them, we obtained a series of
three dimensional discharges, loosely forming a branched lightning
"cube within a cube"
single flat 2D discharge. Cubes
created during our later production runs have charge
planes that are slightly closer to the surfaces of the cube.
The following images do not adequately capture the
clarity, and jewel-like 3D character of these figures. When illuminated
by a multicolor or white LED base, these become sparkling jewels,
glowing from within. Laser crystal art can't begin to match the
exquisite detail and intricate complexity of the thousands of fractal
inside these cubes. Although
the actual pattern varies from specimen to specimen, your
satisfaction is guaranteed.
Following is a typical Style 22 sculpture on an ROT45MC rotating light base:
