by Leonardo Vintiñi
An Oopart (Out Of Place ARTifact) is a term applied to dozens of prehistoric objects found in various places around the world that, given their level of technology, are completely at odds with their determined age based on physical, chemical, and/or geological evidence. Ooparts often are frustrating to conventional scientists and a delight to adventurous investigators and individuals interested in alternative scientific theories.
Just a few years ago, a strange stone was found in a suburb of Moscow. It has been examined by investigators from various disciplines, but since it exhibits such unusual characteristics, it seems to defy adequate classification. It might even contradict our current understanding of the distant past.
While investigations found the specimen to date several millennia before the emergence of man, it appears to hold two screw-like objects. Curiously, several researchers agree that these objects don’t appear to be naturally occurring features but instead display characteristics of manufactured materials.
On Aug. 13, 2003, the Russian newspaper Life published an article about the specimen. The report said that the rock was determined to be several million years old, but it contained what some researchers insist can only be the product of an advanced technology.
The report describes the objects, resembling a nut and a bolt, found embedded in the stone. As if this remarkable specimen weren’t strange enough, further evidence finds that the rock might not be of Earthly origin at all, but a product of outer space.

Not long ago, another rock with similar features was found in Russia. Much like the stone described above, this discovery found in the country’s Galus Province also contained an unexpected surprise. When the specimen underwent X-ray analysis, it revealed the shocking image of eight screws held within it.
Another discovery of this type was found a few years back in China’s Mazong Mountain area. While on a research expedition, stone collector Zhilin Wang uncovered a pear-shaped black stone that also contained what looks remarkably like a metal screw.
Geologists and collectors from all over the world instantly became intrigued with Wang’s find. News of the discovery brought together more than 10 geologists and global physicists from various research institutions throughout China to examine the mysterious specimen.
This extraordinary black rock reveals a screw-threaded metal bar that looks undoubtedly manmade. Yet this metal rod seems to have been naturally encased in the ancient rock, suggesting it is millions of years old. All scientists who have examined the stone agree that this specimen is one of the most valuable archeological finds recently uncovered in China.
