Valley of Stone Balls in Kazakhstan

Caspian International News Agency– This region has countless stones shaped like balls which are spread all along the steppe lands.

These balls are in different sizes but most of them have a diameter of 3 to 4 meters. It is believed that these balls are hard and compact objects which are created from precipitation of minerals.

Most of them are round and are made of sedimentary rocks or soil. This is not a rare phenomena and instances of it have been observed around the world.

What is rare is the big size of the stones in this region. Stone balls as large as these have been found in only a few places around the world.
