EXHALATIONS












These fascinating objects have been collected on the beach here in Browns Bay.
I am reading an 18th Century book on archaeology & found this description of “thunderbolts” which I feel suits my finds very well:
“After close scientific examination I have concluded that they are formed by an admixture of a certain exhalation of thunder and lightning with metallic matter in dark clouds, which is coagulated by the circumfused moisture and coagulated in a mass (like flour with water) and subsequently indurated like a brick”.
