Moeraki Boulders

These strange balls in the mist look strangely like alien eggs. They are found at the Koekohe Beach on the Otago coast of New Zealand. Up to 9 feet in diameter, they are almost perfectly spherical in shape, with a crystal filled hollow interior. Nobody knows for sure exactly how they were formed or how they got here, but it is widely believed that they are a cementation of mud stone and coastal erosion.
