Throughout the world, many ancient sites have produced perplexing, ancient stone carvings, of hugely varying size.
Some of the ancient relics found, are of a perfect sphere, while others feature extremely detailed, and as yet, unexplained carvings, completed with as yet, unknown methods or technology.
The largest amongst this perplexing group of artefacts, are undoubtedly the “land pearls,” some of the most impressive are to be found within Costa Rica.
Perfectly spherical stones, which although claimed to be natural, are clearly highly perplexing ancient objects.
Parallel to the land pearls, are the many tiny artefacts that have been unearthed, at many different sites around the globe.
The Klerksdorp spheres for example, found upon the African Continent, are typically found to be ranging in diameter from 0.5 to 10 cm.
These stones also vary widely in shape, from flattened spheres to well-defined discs.
Petrographic and X-ray diffraction analyses of specimens, found that they consist either of hematite or wollastonite.
And all of the specimens which were cut open, exhibited an extremely well defined radial structure, terminating at the centre of the Klerksdorp sphere.
Some of these objects exhibit well-defined, and parallel latitudinal grooves or ridges, which many have claimed are artificial additions, these artefacts have been dated at an astonishing, 3 billion years old…
Additionally, some of the other, more perplexing ancient Carved Stone Balls, now known as “petrospheres,” have also been found in Scotland and England.
Dated from the late Neolithic, they are usually spheres, and range from sizes of around 2.75 inches, to 7 cm across, and have from 3 to 160 protuberances on their surface.
They range from having no ornamentation, to extensive and highly varied complex patterns.
A wide range of theories, have been produced to explain their use or significance, although their true purpose remains a mystery.
Yet thanks to the complex designs added to these Scottish Petrospheres, they are undeniably man-made, and as such, predictably, they have only been dated to a mere 5000 years old.
Many of the stones, have unfortunately never had their discovery site recorded, and most are found as a result of agricultural activity.
Five found at Skara Brae village, and one at the Dunaddhillfort, yet other noted sites remain elusive.
Interestingly, the distribution of the stones is similar to that of mace-heads, weapons and prestige objects, that were often used in ceremonial situations.
They are undoubtedly, highly compelling.
