Stone disc

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.

Very interesting article I have heard about similar discs found in north in South America       Can't help but wonder why this is not all over the news 

Hi Guys
I found long time ago a disk like it, but smaller (as my hand) within the rock in the top of mountain of Queen Valley, near Hatshepsut Temple Queen. Then I saw a similar formation of this disk inside of some Russian tunnel of mines very similar (like UFO shaped). Can be residues of a drill machine that carve rock ? My Photo is unable to download in your comments space. If you want, ask me to send a part. Cheers.

I´m not sure, but maybe there are some socalled Rock Art round cupmarks on the first image? In this case it could show an ancient star map of stars and other celestial images? (I´m not able to reckognize any star constellations from the actual image angle)

You are absolutely right on that. Even the ones I saw had a hole in the center for a wooden or metal shaft axle. But if you continue looking at the second picture for some time it gives you the feeling that it was rolling in a groove for quite some time to get the almost perfect taper to the edge from a flat center.The depth of the groove would be equal to the distance from the edge to the starting of the taper.
So how it was rolled around in the groove ? what purpose did it serve ? and why was it found in a mining area ? we can only speculate until somebody finds more clues around the place where these discs were found. Hope they do so soon!!

usually (at least for the ones I've seen event the 1300 years old ones) have a hole in the center where a wooden axle was fixed.
