This is a very, very large concretion in Bosnia. Concretions are formed when minerals are precipitated in the pore spaces between grains of sedimentary rock.

    The Moeraki Boulders are a big attraction, found on Koekohe Beach near Moeraki on New Zealand’s coast. The huge, gray, spherical stones formed in sediment on the sea floor 60 million years ago and were revealed by shoreline erosion. The boulders, some of which stand alone and some in clusters, can weigh several tons and measure 10 feet across.

    There is a giant mushroom in Oregon that is over 2,400 years old ...The largest living organism ever found has been discovered in an ancient American forest. The Armillaria ostoyae, popularly known as the honey mushroom. The outline of the giant fungus stretches 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometres) across, and it extends an average of three feet (one metre) into the ground. It covers an area as big as 1,665 football fields. ;)

    Huge Devonian concretions in the Ohio Shale - some of them look like the Death Star from Star Wars.

    When one geologist stumbled across a massive mound 65 years ago, he had no idea his discovery would spark one of the world’s strangest scientific mysteries. The site in Irkutsk, Siberia was discov-ered in 1949 & is a huge convex cone w/ a funnel-shaped recess & a rounded hill in the middle, which looks a little like an eagle’s nest w/an egg nestled inside it. The origin of the Patomskiy crater has baffled scientists for decades
