|An archaeologist know as the ‘Bosnian Indiana Jones’ has found a giant mysterious sphere embedded in the ground in Bosnia. Semir Osmanagich said the sphere dates back more than 1500 years and was believed to be proof of a lost ancient civilization.|
The finding is based on previous work from Mr Osmanagich, who has travelled the world exploring these ancient spheres.
“I’ve been researching prehistoric stone ball phenomenon for 15 years”
|"Preliminary results show the radius to be between 1.2 and 1.5 meters. Materials have not been analyzed yet. However, brown and red color of the ball point to very high content of the iron. So, the density has to be very high, close to the iron which is 7,8 kg/c.c. If we take value of only 5 kg/c.c. we have all the elements for the preliminary calculation of the mass. Mass comes to be over 30 tons!"|
|Experts were quoted as saying they believed the boulder was not man made. The spherical stone may be an example of concretion. This is when a compact mass of rock is formed by the precipitation of natural mineral cement within the spaces between sediment grains. The result is often spherical in shape, with the process forming the famed Koutu boulders in New Zealand. Other experts say the round shape of the rock could come from spheroidal weathering. This is a type of weathering affecting jointed bedrock.|
