It is unlike any artifact ever found in North America and remains a mystery!
March 18, 2021 – Clarkesville, GA – An Atlanta couple traveled to a remote and mountainous northwest corner of Habersham County, GA to check on their vacation cabin, after a fierce storm rolled through the previous night. The cabin was fine, but they noticed that a strange stone object had been exposed by torrential rains then slid down the steep slope of Chimney Mountain a short distance.
The object was carved from Rhyolite, a dense volcanic stone that is associated with caldera type volcanoes. This stone is quite common in northern Habersham and western Rabun Counties, Georgia. Its identity was confirmed with ultraviolet light, which revealed a dense content of clear silicate crystals, which is typical of rhyolite. The carved stone is approximately 25″ (63.5 cm) tall.
