News: Article: Stone collection in Peru museum reveals ancient civilization

Ica. Aug. 15 (ANDINA). At first sight. the small Peruvian town of Ica. situated in the Nazca Desert about 5 hours by bus from Lima. has nothing extraordinary to offer. But after one step into Museo Cabrera. a museum that houses engraved stones of Ica. a different world emerges.

Over 10.000 stones of varying sizes fill the museum. They all have a black. smooth surface on which figures are engraved. Lifting them. you would find them much heavier than everyday stones of similar size.

Dr. Javier Cabrera Darquea. who collected and studied the stones for 37 years. got a small stone as a gift for his birthday. Surprised by its weight and design. he started collecting and studying the stones.

Eugenia Cabrera C.. director of the museum and daughter of Dr. Cabrera. said that her father conducted an analysis on the stones and found that they are a common type of rock called andesite. coated with a special layer on the surface. which made them black and smooth and probably gave them the extra weight.

He speculated that the layer may have been soft at first. which allowed people to draw the figures on it. and later became hard. To this day. the coating is still on the stones. allowing us to see the figures. Click here to read full article at The Epoch Times.
