Later, the find was donated to the Museum of the History of Transylvania in Cluj. The editors of RUFOR, a Romanian UFO magazine, found the strange object in a storeroom of the museum in 1995

The Aluminium Wedge of Aiud
I would love to see scientific study done to that piece..
I wonder if the collector is interested in that, or it just collects dust in a cellar
It's interesting but I generally ignore that artifact for the reason you mention.. without proper study it's hard to begin to explain it and we just have to accept it at face value, which I don't always trust.
Unexplained bruises, scratches and burns, skin gouges have all been frequently reported
Intriguingly, the physical signs of attack often go unnoticed until people get home and relax or return to their hotels for the night. Only then do the unexplained injuries manifest. Some of the scratches and burns disappear as quickly as they emerge while others may last for months.
I'll admit I'm no expert, but these symptoms are VERY similar to Radiation Burn:
"Beta burns" are shallow surface burns, usually of skin and less often of lungs or gastrointestinal tract, caused by beta particles, typically from hot particles or dissolved radionuclides that came to direct contact with or close proximity to the body. They can appear similar to sunburn.
If the exposition to beta radiation is intense, the Beta burns MAY MANIFEST IN 24–48 HOURS by itching and/or burning sensation that last for one or two days, sometimes accompanied by hyperaemia.
And also nausea and numbness have manifested, all relatable to Radiation Poisoning:
-GASTROINTESTINAL- This syndrome often follows absorbed doses of 6–30 Gy. Nausea, Vomiting, loss of appetite, and abdominal pain are usually seen within two hours.
-NEUROVASCULAR- This syndrome typically occurs at 30 Gy or less (10 Gy). It presents with neurological symptoms such as dizziness, headache, or decreased level of consciousness
Now, I'm not saying that it's 100% certain that there's some source of radiation hidden somewhere in that place, especially since IMO it's all make-believe AND marketing, but MAYBE...just maybe...edit on 26/8/13 by MadHatter364 because:
