All the more reason to take a Geiger counter reading of that transformer (or whatever it is)!

Why would someone put something like that into a block of cement?

Because...Chernobyl?

that is a likely reason to stick something in cement
but for the most part I find most of these blocks of cement with every piece of junk or scrap from a building site
or where general manual labour is to be found

it's likely an old transformer from some old electrical equipment , generator or something
and was discarded along with the left over cement in a bag by workies

I see these all the time near housing developments and other places and even seen them out in the country where fly tippers are on the rise !

Although I cant say I've ever seen a transformer in cement , thats a new one

however on second thought this is just an attempt at an out of place in time object
some hoaxer trying to say this is an modern object embedded in ancient rock found in a cave
when its a bag of cement with junk dumped into it and left in water to make it smooth out

but of course we could be completely wrong

I've always liked reading about these kind of rock finds......here's another electronic One... ( Enigmalith ) .....and then there's the ( London Hammer )......sorry about having no links? I'm on my tablet, and it's either this or my phone...taking me too long trying.....anyhow Rock On.............

It's not concrete or stone it's a type of magnesium-zinc metal alloy. Look at the pic with the 4 bolt holes. You can see a half-moon dent shape where something stuck it. If they put a multimeter on it set at continuity ringer that would prove that it conducts electricity.

They could cut into it and look for a part number.

Something fishy about the formation of the "rock" though. It looks more like a type of mortar.



Hard to tell, but it's probably a concretion. In certain environments (like caves), stone precipitates very very rapidly (in years or decades.)

Did the burners operate on AC or DC current?

it's from a tv cathode ray tube......50's and 60's then some setting type resin globs left over were all dumped into a pile or trash can......then found with the cold joint fractures in the 4 main glob sections showing weardown from acid rain

Need an xray of it immediately. I highly think it is fake but It really looks like a stone.

I doubt it is an ancient, not more ancient than my tube TV in the garage! The ancient shall not look like a 75VA transformer.

If that is real stone the transformer could be from that secret geothermal power plant they built too close to the volcano.

This is how they moved all the blocks of the Pyramids of Egypt. They all had little motors in them that had a weighted flywheel attached, and when you gave the block a single push, the motor would start and the flywheel would turn, flipping the block over all by itself. The workers would just use small wedges to guide the rocks where they needed to go. Most of the motors would be removed once the blocks were in place, but there were some that occasionally just broke, and they would be left in place.

I just read your message... Yes, I think you exactly right!

NO!
tv cathode ray tube use Very fine wire.
the wire on this is think.
and the wire is vertical, witch is odd?
All transforms I have see use horizontal wiring.
and I have seen ones from before the 50s.

the thickness of this wire would be for the low volt high amp coil.
if thin would be high volt low amp.
so if this was a part of a transformer it would have a coil on the same rock!
but to work as we know it, it must be able to have a magnetic field.
so iron steel tin copper silver gold ect.
Not stone? and definitely Not with thick wire.
if you can get a field with stone.
you would need very High volts.
maybe some one was experimenting with it?
Melted stone! copper melts at a much lower temp!!!

> one possibility! ferrite suppressor. <
but they did not know about ferrite so used this stone.

You are loosing me here... The ancient device CANNOT look like a modern days transformer with the copper wire and varnish and mylar tape sticking out, period, case closed... unless someone built a time machine traveled in the ancient past and forgot a transformer in Bosnia or where ever it is...

I was just trying to guess what it was / did.

what ever the (what looks like paper/tape)
the copper wire would have badly oxides.
So its most probably a hoax..
BUT we dont know what the stuff that looks like paper is!
and under what condition is was.
or what the copper alloy is!
So you never know...

Is that not an immersion heater for an asphalt or bunker oil tank?

I know it would be very nice to have this and prove that it came from 10000BC, or something. Trust me, that would make my life the way easier. One other thing, notice that the copper is oxidated only in a few places and in others it has its original color. That would not be the case if the thing laid under ground for centuries, millennias, etc.

Thanks
