Is Bosnia Massive Stone Ball Discovery Proof Of Lost European Advanced Civilization?

Most human history has been uncovered in the Middle East, Southern Asia, Africa, and Mesoamerica. Many historians and archeologists disagree that the European continent may have been the home of one of Earth’s oldest civilizations. On the other hand, recent finds in Europe lead to a separate secret portion of Earth’s past that may astonish everyone. Scientists are still perplexed by the 2016 discovery of a gigantic stone ball in Bosnia.

The massive half-buried stone ball with a diameter of more than 1.5 meters was unearthed in Bosnia and Herzegovina near the settlement of Zavidovici in the Podubravlje forest. Semir Osmanagich, a controversial archaeologist, discovered the mystery ball.

According to Osmanagich, the ball was formed intentionally, supporting his belief that Europe previously had an extremely advanced civilization. Osmanagich is the same archeologist who claimed in 2005 that a cluster of hills near Visoko, north of Bosnia’s capital Sarajevo, was home to one of the world’s oldest pyramids.

The Bosnia stone ball is estimated to weigh around 30 tons, and its brown-reddish hue indicates that it is partially made of iron. According to Osmanagich, it might be humanity’s earliest stone sphere. He believes it demonstrates the presence of a sophisticated ancient civilization stretching back more than 1,500 years.

In the late 1990s, reports of unusual stone balls began to circulate. “I’ve been investigating prehistoric stone ball phenomena for 15 years,” Osmanagich remarked. By the middle of March 2016, it was clear that the most significant stone ball in Europe had been unearthed. He promised that Bosnia and Herzegovina was formerly strewn with hundreds of stone balls, but many of them were destroyed by individuals who believed the treasure was hiding inside.”

However, Semir now speaks somewhat differently about the spherical stone balls than he did two months ago and is more guarded regarding aliens and high technology stone spheres.”

Why does he think this finding is important? “First, it would indicate that Southern Europe, particularly the Balkans and Bosnia, were home to great civilizations in the ancient past for which we have no written records,” states Phy.org. Second, they had advanced technology that was superior to ours. Finally, they understood the strength of geometrical shapes since the sphere, along with pyramidal and conical shapes, is one of the most potent shapes. It’s no surprise that pyramids and tumuli may also be discovered in Bosnia.”

Is Bosnia’s stone ball truly the most enigmatic?

Bosnia’s stone ball does not claim to be the most mysterious. Scientists have been perplexed by similar spherical stones from Costa Rica and other regions of South America for more than 70 years. Workers chopping down thickets for banana plantations found them in the 1940s.

According to a ScienceDaily article from 2010, “approximately 300 balls are known to exist, with the biggest weighing 16 tons and reaching eight feet in circumference.” Many of these are concentrated in the Diquis Delta region of Costa Rica. Some are still immaculate in their original locations, while others have been moved or destroyed due to erosion, fires, and vandalism. Scientists estimate the stones were made around 600 A.D., with the majority dated after 1,000 A.D. but before the Spanish invasion.”

Later, in Mexican silver mines, stone spheres were discovered identical to those found in Costa Rica but much more significant. The Sierra de Ameca is a hill range located west of Guadalajara. During colonial times, the region was vital for gold and silver mining. Piedra Bola is the name of one of the mines (Stone Ball). The scenery immediately surrounding this mine is so different and peculiar that it was on the cover of National Geographic in August 1969.

There are roughly a hundred weird stone balls in the woodland center surrounding the Piedra Bola mine. They are nearly perfectly spherical, ranging from around sixty centimeters to ten meters. The size of these symmetrical stones is particularly huge. Nothing like them exists anywhere else in Mexico, and there are just a handful of similar specimens around the globe.

Are the balls formed naturally?

Geologists did not rule out the possibility that the balls (both American and European) formed naturally. However, there is no agreement on their nature. The balls might be ferruginous nodules, which develop during the compaction of sediments in ore and coal seams. Organic residues, mineral, or bacterial accumulations are frequently discovered at the core of the nodule, acting as a “seed” throughout its development.

Some scientists underline that when chemicals are deposited in an equally porous rock in all directions, the concretion forms spherical and expands uniformly. And the ocean floor is referred to as the balls’ ancestral habitat. Soft sediments, for example, developed around the remnants of shells, animal bones, and algae. When the seafloor rose, they were stranded on dry ground.

Samuel Lothrop, a staff archaeologist at Harvard University’s Museum of Archeology and Ethnography, was the first to measure stone balls from Costa Rica correctly. He stated that the large balls were the best grade in his evaluation. They were so precise that measuring the diameters with tape (in five directions) and a plumb line yielded no results. The archaeologist discovered only surface imperfections of 2 millimeters in size.
