Fulgurites
The summit of Shastina is covered with visible scars from lightning strikes, called fulgurites. Shastina has many excellent examples of the features, some appearing as green scars on the rock. Others drill small holes or yield green or black obsidian 'tears' weeping out of the volcanic rock.
