For decades, humanity has successfully been conquering space. It is believed that understanding the processes occurring in the galaxy will bring us closer to unraveling the mysteries of life. But 2.8 billion-years old spheres found in the mines of South Africa have baffled experts.

The so-called Klerksdorp spheres have been confusing scientists with their riddles for more than a decade, because neither their origin nor their purpose has been clarified yet. Due to the age of the balls, there is an opinion that they are extraterrestrial artifacts, because human life could not exist billions of years ago.
According to Biblioteca Pleiades, a man called John Hund acquired one of those spheres and took it to the University of California to study the artifact.
In one of his letters, he wrote that while removing the ancient rock from the site on the farm Gestoptefontein in 1977, he decided to cut the rock into blocks. While cutting one of the blocks, he came across the spheres as hard as steel.
Besides, Hund stated one of the spheres was tested at the California Space Institute, and it was found out that the sphere was finely balanced, it exceeded the limit of their measuring technology. It was “within one-hundred thousandths of an inch from absolute perfection.”
Hund further noted that even NASA did not have a technology to create such objects and the only way to create something like that would be possible in zero gravity.
In the following decades, during mining operations in South African mines, such spheres were increasingly found, and by the early 2000s, at least 200 specimens ranging in size from 2.5 to 10 centimeters were collected. Almost all of the mysterious Klerksdorp balls discovered had an ideal spherical shape and a notch in the middle, and three parallel notches were found on one of the spheres.
In 1984, the curator of the museum of Klerksdorp, South Africa, Roelf Marx described that spheres were at least 2.8 billion years old with a very hard surface. He said the sphere was strange and puzzling and had a fibrous structure inside.
Geologist Paul Heinrich said the claims made by John Hund in the letter were not verified. He found out that the South African spheres studied by him were not perfectly balanced and shaped.
Roelf noticed one more important thing that one such ball from the museum’s exposition could rotate by itself, while the museum did not have any vibration, and the sphere was isolated in a closed display case from any external sources of influence.
According to an American researcher in prehistoric culture, Michael Cremo, these spheres suggested that the intelligent life existed on Earth long before the human could imagine.
Ancient astronaut theorists believe that 3 billion years ago, aliens delivered to our planet spherical containers filled with unicellular life forms.
