FACT OF THE DAY:

How Nature Creates Uncannily Spherical Boulders: There’s a geological phenomenon behind exceptionally round rocks & I’m going to feature this for a couple of days! LARGE BOULDERS SHAPED LIKE NEARLY perfect spheres can be found in a handful of places around the world.  Naturally occurring balls of rock can vary drastically in size. In the “Valley of Balls” or Torysh Valley in western Kazakhstan, a stretch of semi-desert landscape is covered in concretions ranging from tiny marbles to huge boulders nearly the size of a car. The larger ones still originate with a small  nucleus such as a shell, leaf, fossil or marine skeleton but, if conditions are just right, the binding phenomenon can occur for extra-long periods of time, resulting in giant spheres sometimes called “cannonball concretions:.

Some of the biggest examples can be found at Rock City, part of a Kansas state park featuring nearly 200 large sandstone concretions (claimed to be the largest such collection on earth), and some have grown to nearly 30’ across!
