The development of a solution mixing fine iron particles with Diamagnetic Potassium Ferrocyanide in Prussian Blue Stain (PBS Fe2) or Paramagnetic Potassium Ferricyanide in Prussian Blue Stain (PBS Fe3), allowed for the detection of Lichtenberg figures imprinted on a glass slide. Materials and Methods: Fine iron particles were mixed in deionized water. Aliquots of the iron solution were combined with both types of the aforementioned Prussian Blue Stain (PBS). Two types of the PBS and fine iron particles were developed, the first with diamagnetic properties (Potassium Ferrocyanide) dubbed (PBS Fe2) and the second with its paramagnetic counterpart Potassium Ferricyanice dubbed (PBS Fe3). In separated slides drops of each solution were allowed evaporating at room temperature in the absence of high voltages discharges. Photomicrographs of the dry fields and video-recordings during evaporating were obtained for further analysis. Results: During evaporation, flashes of light in some areas of the slides were recorded. Afterwards, distinctive images showed formations resembling Lichtenberg figures that were randomly documented in the dry fields of both solutions tested.
