Ancient cultures may have known more about extraterrestrials than we do now.
There are several unexplained artifacts, artworks, and locations created by some of the world’s most advanced ancient civilizations that point to the presence of sentient entities on the planet.
The best examples of otherworldly visitors are Hopi Indian legends, abnormalities in Egyptian pharaoh DNA, and Sumerians’ remarkable grasp of astronomy. Besides, the “Sky Stones” tale has been contentious since the 1990s. Extraterrestrial visitors from the skies are said to have left the matte-finish blue stones with white veins.
Angelo Pitoni, an Italian geologist, went to Sierra Leone, West Africa, in search of diamonds in 1990. He made an astounding discovery while studying in the Kono district (in Sierra Leone’s Eastern Province).
Fullah Chief (Tribal Headmen) of the region showed him one of the strange blue stones. The chief informed him about an ancient tradition about the stones, which explained why the area was so mineral-rich.
The stones, according to folklore, were formerly Angels who lived in the sky. For their wrongdoings, God exiled them to Earth, where they became statues and were buried beneath the earth.
They did not arrive on Earth alone; instead, they carried with them a chunk of the sky and stars. That is why the region is so mineral- and diamond-rich.
The structure of those captivating stones piqued Pitoni’s interest. He even took the stones to Europe to have them examined. He had them analyzed at the Geneva Institute of Natural Sciences and the University La Sapienza in Rome.
He assumed the stones were turquoise, but he was mistaken. The stones did not match any other known mineral, according to the test. Many studies were unable to pinpoint the source of the blue color.
Pitoni sky stones were subjected to other experiments at the University of Utrecht, where they were exposed to acids in the hopes of changing their composition, but no such changes occurred. Furthermore, they were heated to 3000 degrees Celsius without losing their composition. Surprisingly, there was no color when examined under a microscope, leading some researchers to believe they were not created naturally and may not be from Earth.
The stones were also examined in Germany and Tokyo. According to the study, they were composed of 77 percent oxygen, 20 percent carbon, lime, and traces of silicone and other elements.
“The composition gives the “Sky Stone” a concrete or stucco-like appearance, and it appears to have been artificially dyed. Because this stone-like artifact used to pop out during the digging in the area, the indigenous living in the area where the stone was discovered were already aware of its existence.”
The age of the stones was determined by carbon dating to be between 2,500 and 17,000 years old. The stones were valued on the market due to their enigmatic composition and distinctive appearance. They were also known as “kryptonite” at the weekend market in Marakesh, Morocco.
Pitoni’s identification is a source of skepticism. He was a self-described botanist, gemstone expert, respected and decorated special forces agent, discoverer of Mayan statues, and was linked to other archaeological sites, according to certain web sources. His authenticity is questioned because he has no affiliations with other respectable institutions or institutes.

The plot then shifts to Jared Collins, an American artist, and designer. He met a gem trader in Hong Kong in 2013 while on a vacation to Asia in quest of rare gems and minerals. Collins dialed the dealer’s number and requested that he come to his cramped flat. Nothing shocked him after searching hundreds of bags full of jewels until he came upon an oddly shaped rock with white veins running through it.
“It was an odd thing with a very attractive blue color, and when I took it up to examine it, it was strangely light for its size, and I assumed it was some kind of synthesized or hybrid wax/plastic material, but it also appeared to be a natural stone of some sort. It was puzzling, and I had no idea what I was looking at, and I had no way of comparing it to anything else I had ever seen or handled,” Collins explained.
Collins was told a weird narrative about how they arrived from the skies by the dealer. He even submitted the material to GRS Swisslabs, where Dr. Preeti examined it. The doctor couldn’t say anything after waiting months for the results and concluded that the sample came from unidentified material. Collins wanted to buy the painting, but the dealer wouldn’t sell it to him.
Collins remained thinking about the Sky Stone artwork after he departed Hong Kong. He tried unsuccessfully to locate the stone in other locations in order to gather further information. The only known public location for the stone was Erich Von Daniken’s museum, the Mystery Park, in Interlaken, Switzerland. He wrote a letter to the museum requesting a little chunk from their two enormous stones but was turned down.

Collings was keen to get his hands on the stone. He contacted the Hong Kong gem trader again to see if he might sell the stone. Collins made a proposal to the dealer after several emails and phone calls, which he accepted. He sent Collins the small cutaway piece of Sky Stone (which had earlier been sent to Dr. Preeti for testing) along with everything he knew about it.
In his letter, the gem dealer stated that he had got the piece from an Italian named Vijay.
“When I heard Vijay’s story, I asked him if he might sell me a few pieces from whatever he had left. His companion had traveled to Italy to see that professor Pitoni after learning of the presence of the stone that he had obtained.
I bought a few shards and sold everything except the two pieces you saw at my residence, including the small cutaway you now have.”
Collins was able to track down Vijay and communicate with him over email. Angelo Pitoni had discovered the piece of stone when he was in Sierra Leone, according to Vijay. “A local shaman then led him to a spot on the ground where there were few fragments of this blue stuff.
Digging into the ground, he discovered almost 200 kg of it, arranged in a pyramid shape rather than in a natural arrangement. Vijay stated, “I was later provided photocopies of a geologist’s report claiming that the material could not be recognized.”
Collins stated that no one could identify the origin and creation mechanism of the Sky Stones after 5 years of research by a university, independent scientists, and laboratories.
