This chalk ball was discovered in an early Eocene lignite bed. Based on its stratigraphic position, it has been assigned a date of 45-55 million years ago. According to one professional source there was no possibility that the chalk ball was a forgery. It was penetrated over four-fifths of its height by a black bituminous color that merged toward the top into a yellow circle, and which was evidently due to the contact of the lignite in which it had been for so long a time plunged. As to the rock in which it was found, it was perfectly virgin and showed no trace whatsoever of any exploitation. Who built this man-made artifact so long ago in our distant past, 40 million years before humans were supposed to have existed?
