Was This Giant Stone Sphere Crafted by an Advanced Civilization of the Past or the Forces of Nature?
The Bosnian Indiana Jones has come into contact with a giant stone sphere. Like the famous movie counterpart, this large object is also bringing excitement along with it. The stone sphere discovered in mid-March, 2016 in Bosnia may be the largest of its kind in the world, however there is much debate if the feature is man-made or natural. The stone ball was discovered in a forest in Podubravlje and has a radius of between 1.2 – 1.5 meters (3.9-4.9 ft.) Preliminary tests suggest that it could weigh over 30 tons, making it the most massive stone sphere in Europe.
A press release by Dr. Sam (Semir) Osmanagich, says that the materials have not yet been analyzed, however the “brown and red color of the ball point to very high content of iron.” With that in mind, his research has suggested quantities of 7,8 kg/c.c. of iron as a possibility – which would advance the weight of the stone sphere to over the estimate of 30 tons (which is based on a value of 5 kg/c.c.) That weight of the massive stone sphere could make it a contender for the heaviest stone ball in the World - surpassing those in Costa Rica (35 tons) and Mexico (40 tons).
