What’s new in a new species of giant rock?
article New Scientist: New species of huge, round, rock sculpture has been discovered in an Indonesian island.
The giant, six-foot-tall sculpture was discovered by conservationists in the Java island of Sulawesi and is one of a number of giant stone sculptures discovered in recent years.
The sculpture was found by scientists studying the rocks of a sandstone island off the island’s east coast.
The island’s largest rock, known as Javanese Jug, is the largest on the Indonesian island, but its rocks are very thin and hard.
The scientists used a robot to study the rock, and then a computer model of the sandstone.
They found the sculpture was made of quartzite, a type of rock common in Indonesia.
The scientists said that the rock had been “touched” by a wave, and the sand had been removed and polished, with the results showing that the stone had been polished.
They said that while they had previously seen a lot of large, round rocks like these in Indonesia, they had never seen a giant rock.
