This has already been determined to be of geologic origin. :unsure:

See this post, and this post.  

Regards,

I have read this post several times and the evidence although compelling does not change a thing. 

I do believe it started as a naturally occurring phenomenon but with some alterations.

Theory to it's origin is still theory.

When seeing the object completed just strengthens my views.

Altered by hand of man.

Everything presented as evidence by some of the most prominent geo theorists is lacking judgement as to the various patterns. If the patterns were of one consistent nature such as what has been presented it would be more compelling to go with the flow. I really like a mystery.

But I do not believe in Bigfoot either.

When was the last time any of us saw a flying saucer?

This has been an interesting thread, offering a fine example of the science process.  Personally, I first assumed this object was a human relic, probably recent. That this intricately "designed" pattern could be the work of natural geologic forces seemed highly improbable to me. But now that a fair amount of evidence has been presented I am once again reminded that much of our world seems highly improbable. With a lot of theories and a lot of doubts and a lot of revisions, the process of science does a pretty good job of explaining how the improbable is possible. 

While the description of counter septarian structures seemed like a plausible and even likely explanation of this specimen, I wasn't totally convinced until I saw the photos. I believe the photos in Figure 15  (link ) show the same intricate detail, created by natural forces, as in the original object of this thread. I think all the evidence needed is there in the photos. It looks to me like there is no need for any human "enhancement" to create the original object. To paraphrase a Monkee, I saw the photo, now I'm a believer. Not a trace of doubt in my mind. Even as improbable as it seems.

However---back to my original follow up question,

I'm wondering about the possibility of some sort of deposit, worthy of mining in the general area

How interesting this has become to me that I too did some investigation on the basic reasoning as to how, where, when. My own approach was to apply a formula known as "Fibonacci Principle"to the original specimen and the presented evidence.

The manner in which this lens developed, within a deposit and left no others,  still baffles me personally.

 

Well consensus has it, I can see the geological approach and the obscure albeit weird things nature leaves behind to baffle and amaze us.

Even the simple things, such as sediment, can evolve into some amazing things.

 

This thread should not stop with me. Is there anything in any of our collections that could compare if not defy a logical explanation?

I for one am still looking for answers on my Pseudounicornius. I do have a few examples of some strange "rocks" but did not place them in any location

to make them easily available. No pictures on my PC but I know I do have some.

Eyes in stone, some perfectly laid out rippling in stone, an axe, a skull, just some strange and unusual "rocks".

Is there any way a new "Can't figger this one out thread Part 2" be started without me starting it?

I'll gather my obscurities together and take some pics if anybody else finds some interest in doing so as well.

 

To this I end my input with a "Hope for all to have a Healthy and Happy New Year!!!!!:yay-smiley-1:

Cool Find!!!:D But It's man-made it looks like it might had been made recently because it is very well carved and it looks like it doesn't have been eroded much.

Wow!!! I'm really confused right now:headscratch:It could also be geology.

It confused a lot of Us.

Yes it was determined to be a geologic piece.
