Stone spheres. Costa Rica
Stone Spheres or The Balls are found all over the world, from the Franz Josef Land to New Zealand. They can be found in Central American countries, USA, Romania, Russia, Kazakhstan, Brazil, China and Israel. The greatest number of these round stones is located in Costa Rica – about 300. The majority of stones has age of about 12 thousand years. The diameter of the balls is up to 7 feet and the weight of some of them reaches 16 tons. The material is a magmatic rock – granodiorite, which resembles granite due to the properties.
The first researches began in 1943. However, to this day archaeologists and geologists from around the world can’t determine the origin of these balls. Archaeologist Doris Zemurray Stone believed that the spheres of Costa Rica could serve as a sort cult sculptures or be some special kind of a calendar. In the 50s of the 20th century during the archaeological excavations in the south of Costa Rica, scientists have found stone spheres, lots of pottery and other artifacts of pre-Columbian America. Many scientists argue that the emergence of these balls is quite understandable. Balls is the magma that rises into the air from an erupting volcano, it falls on the valley covered with hot ash. The magma cools down and becomes solid.
Las Bolas on the Diquis Delta
One of the most notable artifacts that can be found in Costa Rica, dating from the Pre-Columbian era, is ‘Las Bolas’, petrospheres, the stone balls, or stone spheres originating from the Diquis Delta on the southernmost part of Puntarenas Province, and on the Isla del Cano.
No one knows for sure how the balls were made, or why, they vary in size ranging from softball sized ones to large ones measuring two meters across. They are seamless in form and inexplicably constructed; some weighing as much as 16 tons.
THE MYSTERIOUS STONE BALLS OF CHAMP ISLAND
It’s easy to stick a “mysterious” or “amazing” or “mind-blowing” on the front of a title to try and garner a few extra clicks. But in this case I think my use of “mysterious” is merited (for once). These stone balls on Champ Island don’t even have a Wikipedia page!? Yeah, I know, that’s pretty mysterious in itself. There’s a page about carved stone balls in Scotland, and there’s one about some big stone spheres in Costa Rica. But these Champ island ones are Wikipedialess.
What I found most interesting is when describing one of these stone spheres from champ Island the guy literally says the inside was organic. here it is:
Austrian geologist Sepp Fridhubera explains:
the appearance of boulders is a result of the accumulation of sedimentary material transported from land to the sea. The rounded shapes of the rocks were formed underwater and they have an organic core in the center.
There is no official version about origins of these stones; every geologist who comes to the island has his own vision and explanation.
Seems a lot did not hatch especially here in Costa Rica !!!
Hope you find this useful and we unlock this. Thank you for the DRagon Drop !!! Im serious King cant wait to ride again…..
