They look nothing like spheres to me. Just yellow rocks. That would be like calling Mar's moons Deimos or Phobos a sphere.

They look like rocks on the bottom of a dried river bed to me......maybe they have some fools gold in them to give them the yellow look?

That's what the article stated.
Fools gold.

The spheres are so old they have deteriorated/crumbling from their original shape.

I was reading up on the latest discoveries at the site even though this was reported here at ATS a little while back, I thought it worthy to post it in it's own Ancient Civilization thread.

Slayer, i admire your work in general.

But i see no spheres.

EDIT to ADD: I have misunderstood, but so have others i suspect...



Lead archaeologist Sergio Gomez explained that the spheres appear to be made of metal because jarosite is formed by the oxidation of pyrite, which is a metallic ore also known as Fool's Gold. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk... Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook


So, they ARE real spheres, made of pyrite. Just like this one being sold online.

Now dont get me wrong, i am into the whole ET phenomena, but where do the aliens come in regarding these spheres?

No its called he posted the title of the article as is, as is customary to do here at ATS. Having been here as long as you i would think you would know such a thing. In fact I believe in some forums like breaking news it's actually a rule that you have to do that.

I can't believe you would accuse Slayer of such a thing. And I can't believe you have time to hurl insults but no time to click a link.

I think that the Mexican archeologists are making unfounded assumptions.I think that the"sphere's" are mineral nodules.Formed by some type of chemical reaction.Probably a reaction with the pyrite.I don't think they are for anything.I think that they just are.

The article calls them "glowing" orbs. I wonder if this means they were florescent.
It also states that these objects were actually "clay"...and that the cave's walls were dusted with pyrite.
These could have originally been small clay effigies or vessels, which, over time, took on pyrite dust from the decorated 'golden' cavern's ceilings and walls; eventually oxidizing.



The spheres are made of clay and range from 1.5 to 5 inches in circumference.
They get their yellow colour from a material called jarosite.

Lead archaeologist Sergio Gomez explained that the spheres appear to be made of metal because jarosite is formed by the oxidation of pyrite, which is a metallic ore also known as Fool's Gold.
The walls in the chamber were also found to be dusted in pyrite, which gave it an appearance of a gold room.
The archaeologists therefore think that the orbs would have been used by 'high-ranking people, priests, or even rulers' to perform rituals within the tunnels.

According to the article they are made of clay.

They are clay balls which, due to other clues, are thought to have been made for ritualistic practices. What purpose exactly is unknown (of course). The press just loves to be able to say scientists are "baffled" though. Ever notice that?

Now this is Interesting !! but why !!


The walls and ceiling of both chambers were covered with a mineral powder composed of magnetite, pyrite and hematite which provided a special brightness to the place and a peculiar atmosphere for the rituals that were most likely carried there.



Ilumination !


Mark out the points, build the pyre
Assemble different drummers, light up the fire
Put on your masks and animal skins
Illumination, illumination

Listen to the drums
Between each beat, each beat of the drum
Oh beloved mother of liberty
Hold me in your arms

Burn burn, burn brightly
Burn burn, burn white heat
Burn burn, burn brightly
Burn burn, burn white heat
