Klerksdorp spheres: What’s the secret of strange orbs found in 3 billion-year-old rock?

What is the truth behind the mysterious Klerksdorp spheres, which are claimed by conspiracy theorists as evidence of aliens and claimed to have returned on their own?

It was found many years ago in pyrophyllite deposits in South Africa. Klerksdorp spheresWe can safely say that they are strange creatures. It’s not hard to understand why these little ancient balls with stitch-like lines in the middle are the subject of conspiracy theories involving aliens and ancient, forgotten civilizations..

In the news published in the 1980s, these spheres ” a higher civilization, a pre-Diluvial civilization, of which we know almost nothing It was said to have been made by Saying this, the museum curator also that they spin on their own, even when locked in a flicker-free displaywas claiming.

While some claim that these spheres, despite being found in 3 billion-year-old rocks, could only be a manufactured, fake product, others go to the extreme. believed they were evidence of aliens.

The truth behind the mysterious Klerksdorp orbs

Claims about spheres, geologist in 2006 Bruce Cairncross’ caught his attention. Cairncross, these spheres from an article describing them as “mysterious orbs”and had seen the stones from a program that had a psychic examine them and declared them to be the remains of an ancient spaceship.

After their investigation, Cairncross came up with a logical explanation for the spheres found in a geological formation known as the Dominion Group. This natural structure consists of conglomerate and volcanic lava layers accumulating on top. According to him, volcanic rock layers, after being under the influence of too much pressure and heat, transformed into pyrophyllite, the sheath containing the Klerksdorp spheres.

These spheres are known as concretions. These spherical, elliptical or flattened objects made of different minerals to the bedrock are actually quite common, with thousands of examples around the world. These are often found in fine-grained rocks such as pyrophyllite as they allow the movement of water.

Cairncross, ” They are formed from minerals that precipitate from an aqueous solution and crystallize in the bedrock.” he says and continues: “ Because bedrock is uniformly textured everywhere, the growth of concrete occurs as a 360-degree, three-dimensional sphere, unlimited in all directions.He also adds that the spherical shape formed can be distorted if the fluid is moving or if the surrounding rock is not of the same consistency in all directions.

Do Klerksdorp spheres spin on their own?

The mystery of why the sphere rotates “on its own” was explained by the curator of the Klerksdorp Museum, which gives the stones their name. Curator R. Marx, “ A few years ago, I put the sphere in its original position (on a glass shelf) during a visit from a journalist who wanted to make a sensation out of the spheres. Since it is round it is very natural to rotate a bit and we are experiencing a lot of ground shaking due to (gold) mining activities” he said.
