More than a dozen mysterious carved discs found near Volgograd, Russia

A team of investigators in Russia have found more than a dozen stone discs in the Volgograd region of Russia. The team claims that the discs contain tungsten, a high density metal that has applications in military technology.  The nature of the discs remain a mystery.

Russian news site Bloknot Volgograd reports that the finding was made by the Russian UFOlogy and Crytozoology group Kosmopoisk, led by Vadim Chernobrov, during excavations in the Zhirnovsky district of the Volgograd region. The UFO hunters were investigating in the region due its fame for the occurrence of ‘mystical phenomena’.  

While the team had previously discovered more than a dozen disc-shaped stones, they recenly found a particularly large one.

“We already found a dozen of these discs of not more than one meter in diameter and in Kuzbass a disc of about two meters in diameter,” Chernobrov told Bloknot Volgograd, adding that the newest one is unique because it is larger than all the others. 

“The shape..., which resembles the popular image of a flying saucer, has let the imagination of the conspiracy theorists fly,” reports International Business Times . “Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily thinks this is proof that aliens exist and claims the disc is made of tungsten. Tungsten is also known as wolfram, and is used in special military technology.”

The UFO investigation team has made lavish claims about the stone discs, stating that they could be about a million years old, and maintaining that they are most probably military drones that were damaged in an attack on Mars before falling to Earth.

Fortunately, scientists at the Zhirnovsky museum are taking a more rational approach and are studying the largest stone disc to determine its age and material.  Some skeptics also believe that the rocks were not even man-made but are simply the result of ordinary rocks shaped by erosion.

Earlier this year, another disc-shaped stone object was discovered in Russia by a coal mining company, this time in Siberia’s Kuznetsk Basin. The strange relic was found 40 meters underground, which suggests it is quite old. Archaeologists who examined the stone disc, which is perfectly circular with a diameter of 1.2 meters, stated that it was man-made.

Sometimes I wonder if nothing else is there to explore any more besides alien life. Why are people quick to assign everything to aliens? It clearly states in the article that the object is 'manmade' then what's the hype about? I would have preferred a neatly written article stating the purpose of these massive objects rather than being childish about it.

Hear hear !!!

The author of the article gives mention to the alien hypothesis due to the stones having been discovered by “UFO hunters”.  Nonetheless, it also states, “Fortunately, scientists at the Zhirnovsky museum are taking a more rational approach..”

Certainly nothing to get worked up about.  Also, I don’t see how the article could state a purpose for the creation these stones that isn’t wildly speculative.

They're natural believe it or not. Volcanic "bombs" (lumps of molten lava) will form a disc when hurtling through the air if enough rotation is applied. Many are rich in metallic compounds, molybdenum, copper, tungsten. Never consult a Ufologist or Archeologist on Geology, they're too excitable.

Looks more like a disc of accreted material to me. Vastly more like to be a natural phenomenon than something man-made.
