Sometimes in rocks with ages of thousands and millions of years are artificial objects, clearly created by human hands. As an example, the iron hammer with petrified wooden handle, found in rocks of the Cretaceous period.
In General, fossilized iron artificial objects such as nails, bolts and even complex mechanisms of unknown purpose, there are often where ideas of the modern science of them cannot be at all. Not so long ago, in Russia, in Kamchatka, was found petrified, such mechanism consisting of gears, very similar to clock, only big sizes. Judging by the breed, his age should be around 400 million years.
In 1969 in the village of Rzhavchik the Kemerovo region in the development of the coal seam, at a depth of 70 meters has been found an unusual object.
