Metal Spheres Found in 2 Million Year Old Rock

"The Grooved Spheres" Over the last few decades, miners in South Africa have been digging up mysterious metal spheres. Origin unknown, these spheres measure approximately an inch or so in diameter, and some are etched with three parallel grooves running around the equator. Two types of spheres have been found: one is composed of a solid bluish metal with flecks of white; the other is hollowed out and filled with a spongy white substance. The kicker is that the rock in which they where found is Precambrian - and dated to 2.8 billion years old! Who made them and for what purpose is unknown.

Found Here:

This metal sphere is just one of several hundred in one stratum in South Africa that is estimated to date back millions of years. The carefully shaped grooves that they contain cannot be the results of any natural phenomenon. This discovery shows that metal has been used since the very earliest times, and that for millions of years, humans have possessed the technology to make fine grooves in metal.

There is a scientific explanation for these naturally forming spheres .. check out Klerksdorp Spheres on Wikipedia and go from there.

Mmmmeh.. Sounds like a swamp gas explanation. Out of all the "refuted claims" on the wiki pg, there's only one that is mentioned in the articles I quoted, which is that they are made of metal. Which I can't substantiate from merely reading articles, I'd have to test the specimens from all over the world myself to determine the atomic make up. Wikipedia doesn't even address the hollowed out claims. And clearly the ones from New York and the African ones are completely different in appearance, which can't be explained away by "these over here occurred in sand and these occurred in some other type of sediment". The jury is still out for me. I don't post these as articles because I believe them to be fact, I post them because they ARE thought provoking.
