Moreover 150 million years have passed since the spheres were discovered.
A distinctive landscape can be found in Kazakhstan’s Torysh Valley. Countless stone spheres of all sizes are strewn across the surface.
It’s as if gigantic spheres were raining down from the heavens in the ancient past.
The unusual Kazakhstani spheres may be found in the country’s southwestern region, among mountains, valleys, deserts, and tundra.
The spheres are thought to be more than 150 million years old, and they are unique not only in terms of age but also in terms of shape and size. Some of the Spheres are the size of a car, while others are only a few millimeters across.
The story of how they came to be is equally fascinating, as it combines science with mythology or even tales.
According to scientists, the location is home to a geological marvel, with the spheres dating back between 180 and 120 million years, from the Jurassic to the early Cretaceous periods.
Furthermore, the stone spheres are supposed to be made of silicate or carbon cement.
The spheres, according to the academics who flew to Kazakhstan to analyze them, are the product of huge concretions. Alternative researchers believe that these large stone spheres are the “ancestors” of spheres unearthed more recently in Costa Rica and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Those who believe the gigantic stone spheres of Kazakhstan are not naturally formed contend that they are the result of long-lost civilizations that existed on Earth before written history.
However, the truth is that the valley of the spheres is difficult to access.
Nonetheless, geological explanations could range from megaspherulites – crystalline balls formed in volcanic ash and subsequently revealed by weathering – to cannonball concretions – a process in which sediment tends to build around a more solid core. Furthermore, others suggest that the utterances are the product of a process known as spheroidal weathering, in which ideal circumstances for eroding rocks and giving them a spherical shape exist.
Researchers believe the stone ‘balls’ are most likely megaspherulites because not all of the spheres in the intriguing valley are the same size.
