The Heaviest Ancient Stones Ever Made
#1




Extraordinary engineering and building techniques were applied on a colossal scale in ancient times which remain unmatched to this day.
With the help of millions of dollars in contributions from the art world, Biblical scholar Michael Heiser succeeded in mounting a 340-ton boulder to a wall at the Los Angeles Museum of Art, in 2012. The boulder could only be transported 7 miles per day, traveling about 100 miles in around 3 months This was after many failed attempts, where the world’s biggest cranes had kept on breaking. The boulder remained rough and unhewn and is but a pebble when compared to the biggest carved stones of ancient times carved stones of 500, 700, 900 tons are found in their thousands, all over the world.
So, if it was extremely difficult to move a stone weighing a fraction of the weight of the ancient stones then the question has to be, how on Earth was it done?
This video compares the stats on the six largest stones carved in the ancient world.

Number 6: Obelisk of Axum
Number 5: Solomon’s Temple
Number 4: Colossi of Memnon
Number 3: Colossus of Ramses
Number 2: Stone of the South: Temple of Baalbek
Number 1: The Unfinished Obelisk

You look at the size of the huge stone blocks in the Great Pyramids, and you really wonder how they were put into place, so precisely measured and cut. One angle that often gets overlooked about ancient stone masonry is bronze age stonecraft pottery using hard igneous rock. In Cairo Museum's Old Kingdom rooms are dozens of vases, bowls, large lidded boxes, and statues, carved from schist, diorite, granite and obsidian, with no easy answer as to how ancient sculptors carve their shapes with such precision.

Modern stonecraft experts and masons tell us that even with today's power tools and diamond lathes and drills, the same pottery stonecraft cannot be replicated at all. Much less for the perceived tools of the ancient Egyptians such as pounding balls, and copper and stone tools as theorized by archaeological experts.

All the ancient Egyptian carved artifacts have very modern clean lines and perfect proportions, that make the New Kingdom items seem baroque by comparison. Life-size diorite and granite statues have satin-smooth surfaces, and delicately carved features, as if coming from a mold.

A geologist and a machine tool manufacturer describes the nature of these ancient stone artifacts, Professor Ivan Watkins, assigned at the Department of Earth Sciences, at St. Cloud University in Minnesota, says that the primary indicator of how a stone was processed or 'worked' is the condition of the surface of the material at the microscopic level. During his investigation, it was found that Incan and Egyptian stonemasonry had similar workmanship, indicating that the same technology was available across both nations at the time.

Because hard igneous rocks are extremely tough to cut, a mechanical and physical method of cutting them would leave uneven mineral surfaces because the rock would naturally crack along low angles if it was hammered. Because stones like granite contain a mix of minerals with varying degrees of hardness, force applied to the stone's surface ( hammering, grinding, polishing with abrasives ) would cause the weaker planes to crack naturally and the tougher parts to keep together.

All of the ancient stonecraft seen in Incan and Egyptian monuments and stoneware show smooth and slick surfaces, which means the rock was not processed in the manner that archaeologists claim.

The stone-crafting methods used seem to indicate that extreme heat was used to melt quartz fragments into a glaze that fills in irregularities, creating a smooth surface. Watkins sees the same slick stones with Incan stonemasonry at Machu Picchu and Ollantaytambo, and the Rodadero at Sacsayhuaman. The stones keeping an almost a ceramic glaze.

Heat? Interesting.

To know how the ancients could accomplish their fine work with stones, the Geologist professor checked out what was available among our current technologies that could produce the same microscopic condition and slick cut on an igneous stone surface.

Consulting with geologist David Lindroth, at the US Bureau of Mines, Twin Cities Research Center, they both found that a focused laser, 100 watts of power, focused at an area 2mm in circular footprint can cut through any rock, and repeated passes using the same power can cut any stone down to size. The light cutting through stone is called thermal disaggregation.

Confirming that the stones can be smoothly cut with a laser, Watkins looked at the remaining available Incan artifacts that might indicate an unknown process or ancient technology for accomplishing the same power of the modern laser.

Watkins found one clue in the bracelet worn by a modern-day priest in Cuzco. There is a yearly Festival of the Sun among the Incans, and their ceremony has the priest lighting wisps of cotton on fire using the bracelet which is designed with a highly polished concave indentation to focus the sun's rays. Another clue was a cache of sizable parabolic gold bowls kept at a museum in Peru. The bowls did not look like fruit bowls at all with round bottoms that would make them unstable, and seemed to be configured for another purpose—all of them just the right shape and material for a gold mirror series for catching the sun's rays and acting like a magnifying mirror.

Sunlight strong enough to cut stone?

Watkins points to the Conquistador’s records mentioning an Inca golden dish so large, it spanned the length of two men (the sacred artefact was cut up for poker chips by the invaders, then melted into ingots and shipped back to Spain).

The big granite bedrock posts at Machu Picchu look like a place to hold huge mirrors in place for stonecutting. Peru, like Egypt gets very strong sunlight all year long. Gold is most reflective when it is an alloy with silver.

Watkin's research on ancient Incan and Egyptian stonecrafting technology mysteries has enabled him to design a solar-powered device for cutting and polishing stone which is now patented under his name.

Ancient sun sects like the Incans and the Egyptians that worshiped a Sun God may have been taught their solar stonecraft technology by higher beings, which may even include the Atlanteans. Using large, dish-shaped reflectors made up of alloys of gold and silver, the sun worshiping civilizations managed to teach themselves or were taught by other beings how to use the light-focusing technology to amplify sunlight and silently cut and shape stones as hard as granite to build temples, palaces, and citadels as well as pyramids.

A Fresnel lens made from the older television sets can easily cut and melt concrete blocks. I know this to be a fact because we have done it, not me personally, but I was a witness to it. matter of fact, the guy who made one, still has it in his garage.
