Since the 1930s, hundreds of stone balls have been documented, ranging in size from a few centimetres to over two meters in diameter. Almost all of them are made of granodiorite, a hard, igneous stone. Today, they decorate official buildings such as the Asamblea Legislativa, hospitals and schools. You can also find them as ubiquitous status symbols adorning the homes and gardens of the rich and powerful. These authors have been featured on television, radio, magazines, and web pages, where they do an incredible disservice to the public by misrepresenting themselves and the state of actual knowledge about these objects.
These objects are monolithic sculptures made by human hands. Although some of these authors are often represented as having “discovered” these objects, the fact is that they have been known to scientists since they first came to light during agricultural activities by the United Fruit Company in 1940.
