Moeraki Boulders, New Zealand

Moeraki Boulders

Spherical stones that line the New Zealand Moeraki Beach reached 7 feet in diameter and has been compared to huge, all marble giant dinosaur eggs to half submerged prehistoric turtle, ready to stand up and get rid ofsand at any time.

They actually tuberculosis masses of compacted sediment formation below ground more than 50 million years ago. Surrounded by sand erosion, they seem to rise to the surface, as if pushed up from the earth's center.
