``Dislocation Lichtenberg figures'' have been discovered on the surfaces of LiF crystals subjected to high inhomogeneous electric fields. The figures consist of thousands of dislocation loops arranged along  dendritic branches which are terminated by  branches. Etching is necessary to reveal the figures. It is shown that electric fields can nucleate dislocations in LiF crystals.
