The 2.8 billion-year-old spherical objects have perplexed scientists and mystery hunters alike. What did these out-of-place items do? Who used them?
Ancient advanced civilizations have been documented for almost 4,500 years, when the Sumerians of Mesopotamia were busy penning poetry and conducting wars. By comparison, this brief period of time demonstrates the many possible historical gaps.
War is one of the main contributors to the rubble pile on top of problematic historic relics. In ancient times, it was used to demolish or cover up the remains of once-lofty cultures.
Our forebears had sophisticated ideas on many things, contrary to what current history would have us believe.
A collection of artifacts discovered in a South African mine bears witness to their extraordinary achievements. The odd-looking metallic spheres had a smooth finish, concentric grooves around their circumference, and an average diameter of one inch.
The most remarkable feature was their age – 2,8 billion years old.
The Klerksdorp Spheres are said to be proof of a distant species with advanced technological capabilities that could form flawless spheres with intricate electronics. Modern sculptors would struggle to reproduce such precisely round stones without special tools.
Part of these mysterious stones are housed at the Klerksdorp Museum in South Africa, where interested parties can learn more about them. Curator Roelf Marx had this to say:
“The spheres are a mystery. They appear to be man-made, although at the moment they landed on this rock, no intelligent life existed. They’re unlike anything I’ve seen.
“Phyrophylite is mined in South Africa. This phyrophylite, which has a Mohs hardness of 3, was created by sedimentation about 2.8 billion years ago.
In contrast, the fibrous-filled globes with a strong outer shell cannot be scratched, even with steel.
Their differing material consistency from the pyrophylite from which they were removed suggests they are man-made rather than a natural event.
This unusual feature has made researchers wonder if the spheres were not created by a long-forgotten civilization.
Its spherical shape and color variations between dark blue, hazel, and chestnut seem to carry more mysteries than answers. Were they used in an ancient ritual?
Or do their small size and near faultless craftsmanship suggest they were once utilized as body adornment by a 2.8 billion year old culture?
The incredible balance of these out-of-place things was also noticed. Intriguingly, Mr. Hund of Pietersburg, who also acquired a similar stone from a separate mine in Ottosdal, sent an enquiry to the California Space Institute at UC Berkeley, where he received further puzzling news.
“The balance is so fine, it exceeds the limit of their measuring technology,” Hund stated after getting the results.
He went on to describe the strange spheres as “perfectly balanced to within one hundred thousandth of an inch.” NASA researchers claim that existing technology cannot reproduce such a delicate balance, unless the procedure occurs in zero gravity or space.
It’s difficult, if not impossible, to connect this scenario’s qualities to the second offered explanation.
Mr. Hund recorded his observations on the Klerksdorp spheres, as well as those of other scholars and scientists he had spoken with, in a letter that was placed at the South African museum of oddities.
Spheres as hard as steel found in phyrophylite, a material as soft as limestone with a Moh scale rating of only 3.
These are 30-50 mm in diameter with absolutely concentric grooves around the center as though formed. spongy substance inside the hard shell, while others resemble charcoal.”
The spheres were discovered decades ago and have since earned notoriety. Some of the spheres were stolen from the museum to enhance rituals and magic powers by witch-doctors seeking their supposed magical qualities. The spheres were never recovered.
The Klerksdorp spheres’ intended usage became unclear after a long period of exposure to various forces within the Earth’s crust. Regardless, the oddity of these out-of-place objects and their possible purpose for our ancient ancestors cannot be dismissed.
More than 200 of these spheres were found in South Africa’s Wonderstone Silver Mine, where signs of hitherto unknown cultures have just been discovered. The spheres are covered in a nickel-steel alloy, which is not naturally occurring.
Some have a quarter-inch thick shell that splits to disclose an unknown substance that disintegrates upon contact with the air.
Many believe the Klerksdorp spheres are related to, or utilized by, the Anunnaki, who are thought to have erected a mining operation facility located on the plains of South Africa over 200,000 years ago. The relics, however, date back much further, beyond our imagination.
Keeping this in mind, it’s plausible that current science misinterpreted some historical facts, and that the puzzle is finally starting to come together, challenging the accepted paradigm.
Even though these unique artifacts were rendered indecipherable by time, human curiosity attributed them to extraterrestrial origins and uses.
One thing is certain: their ancient inventors, whoever they were, had advanced ideas and techniques far beyond modern man’s scientific interpretation.
Whatever the case, the Klerksdorp spheres remain a mystery.
