A Very Mysterious Stone Made Of Pure Oxygen Was Discovered In Africa

While visiting Sierra Leone in 1990, an Italian geologist called Angelo Pitoni discovered an unusual stone.

All who have investigated it have been perplexed by this intriguing artifact.

Pitoni was supposed to have received it from a local “Fula Chief,” a blue stone with enigmatic white patterns on its surface.

Pitoni transported the stone to the Institute of Natural Sciences in Geneva and subsequently to the University La Sapienza in Rome for additional investigation after returning to Europe.

Tests proved that it was neither a turquoise nor anything else that could be formally identified, much to his amazement. Furthermore, there was no known mineral that matched the bluestone. But it’s the color that’s most interesting.

Despite the fact that various institutions and laboratories have thoroughly examined the artifact, researchers are still baffled as to how the stone obtained or preserved its color.

Surprisingly, the stone was subjected to multiple tests at the University of Utrecht using powerful acids, but none of the acids were able to harm the stone.

It was even heated to above 3.000 degrees Celsius without changing its composition. A little portion of the stone was crushed and examined under a microscope, and it strangely lost its color.

According to research, 77.17 percent of the stone is formed of pure OXYGEN, with the remaining amount distributed between carbon, calcium, and an unknown ingredient.

Researchers pulverized a piece of sky rock and combined it with acetone, hexane, and methylene, then used ultrasound to increase the extractions. They ultimately discovered an organic substance that science has yet to discover.

What exactly is the 55,000-year-old sky stone? How might it be formed primarily of oxygen? Is this a relic of a once-powerful civilization? Perhaps its roots aren’t even limited to the planet…

Surprisingly, Pitoni’s sky stone does not appear to be unique; comparable discoveries have been made in various parts of the world, most notably Brazil.

An unidentified dealer sent the other Sky Stone sample to GRS Swisslabs for testing and analysis. Jared Collins, an American artist, and designer, was intrigued by the little cutaway piece and attempted to purchase it from the vendor so that he could examine it more, but the dealer refused.

He wouldn’t even say how much the larger whole stone would cost. Other displays of this strange stone comprised largely of pure oxygen appear to exist, but the enigma surrounding its composition and origin lingers to this day.
