Al-Naslaa is a mystical rock with a perfect fault in the middle of the Arabian desertPictolic
In the ancient settlement of Taima in Saudi Arabia there is a mystical rock that is more than 4,000 years old. An unusual stone block is divided in the middle perfectly evenly, as if it was done with a laser. There are many versions of the origin of the strange stone formation, but none of them is the only true one.
The world-famous Al-Naslaa rock consists of two huge sandstone boulders that stand on small man-made pedestals. Most of all, people are surprised by the perfect cut between the stones, as if made with a powerful laser beam.
The unusual formation caused a lot of discussion on the Web. Some say that the rock serves as proof that ancient civilizations were much more advanced than historians believe.
Al-Naslaa is just one of many rocks in the Taim, but a mystical crack sets it apart from the rest. The stone block has puzzled geologists and historians since it was discovered. No one can explain how it was formed. The smooth surface and small pedestals can be created by nature, but the perfect cut looks like it was made by human hands.
Most geologists believe that the crack formed in the rock for a natural reason - due to the movement of tectonic plates. It was insignificant, but it was enough for the block to split in two. Some scientists suggest that the cut is a fault line, since the material around the faults is usually not as strong and easier to erode. Others believe that Al-Naslaa is of volcanic origin.
Many people think that the mystical formation is the work of an ancient civilization or aliens. Perhaps in the future, the rock of Al-Naslaa will reveal its secrets, but for now it continues to stand shrouded in mysticism and secrets.
The Crimean coast has its own miracle - "cheese" rocks. They prove once again that nature creates no worse than sculptors and architects.
