The Mystery Of The Stone Orbs

In 1930, after preparing the field for banana plantation, the first stone spheres were found - this is one of the strangest archaeological mysteries that have not been solved until today. Most are made of hard igneous rocks.

This happened in Costa Rica. Later, many stone spheres of different sizes were found throughout the world. These days, more than 300 have been found. Some are located in front of various administrative buildings. It is unclear what the exact age of the globes is, but according to other archaeological finds that have been found there, they must have been made between 200 and 1000 years after Christ.

Most of the stone spheres have almost perfect shapes. The weight of some of them goes up to 16 tons. How exactly are they made, how they were cut to perfection, no one can say for sure. There are only guesses.

I think they belong in the same category as the 100ton stone monoliths, the pyramids of egypt and places like macchu picchu and Balbek

good point chris, there is also cracks in the rock. indicative that these were formed by heat. notice he said they are almost perfect. likely natural phenomenon

I'm from Costa Rica and I think that this pic is wrong, the real costa rican stone spheres are like this http://www.dcrnewsblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/esferas.jpg.jpg

For the facts about how these boulders were formed, and some of the local, New Zealand, myths about them :- http://www.moerakiboulders.com/
