Commonly known as Fractal Burning, “Lichtenberg Figure Burns” are typically branching, tree-like patterns that are created by the passage of high voltage electrical discharges along the surface, or inside, electrically insulating materials (dielectrics).  The preliminary Lichtenberg figures had been in reality 2-dimensional “dust figures” that shaped while dust debris within the environment settled on electrically charged plates of resin within the laboratory of their discoverer, German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799). Lichtenberg figures aren’t correct fractal patterns, but are created randomly as the electricity burns through the surface of the wood treated with an elctrolyte solution.
