They are fascinating and everyone should witness them at least once in a lifetime.
We all already know and have confirmed that the weirdest things mostly occur in nature. The proof of this is the trovant stones.
They meet in Romania because many tourists have already begun to fly to this country to at least once witness how they look. These are uncommon stones that are able to grow, multiply as well as even move.
Their home is one of the tiniest villages named Costestio. Locals have not been interested in them for a long period because these stones have become commonplace for them.
Legends have long been told about them, which, at last, turned out to be real. Some residents make souvenirs out of them, and consumers claim that when they get wet, they begin to multiply like mushrooms, and even move into the house looking pretty creepy.
Residents are already used to them, and it seems that nothing will amaze them.
It is believed that these uncommon phenomena formed after a long period of seismic activity. The influence of the earthquake destroyed sandy soils as well as formed such rocks. In Romania, trovants have been detected in more than 20 territories.
These strange stones are made of a hard-stone core encircled by sand or grit. Only very spongy sand contributes rich in calcium carbonate and have formed such a weird frame.
They require calcium carbonate in order to form trovants. They absorb minerals from the rain, then blend with the chemicals they contain, and because of this, they start to grow because pressure builds up inside them. For 1000 years, they grow by 4-5 centimeters.
These stones are commonly smooth, without sharp edges, and they may be globular or nodular as well. In the process of growth and reproduction, their shape and size can transform as well, reaching from a few millimeters to even up to 10 meters.
Truants are uncommon not only in their structure and ability to develop and reproduce. These extraordinary phenomena are able to move from place to place.
They have short shoots and age rings that become visible over time. Scientists have not yet figured out how to describe this phenomenon because their features go beyond logic. It is improbable to describe how they developed such qualities over time.
It is still not known whether they should be classified as living or non-living, since they exactly combine the properties of both stone and herb. Alive or not, they are fascinating and everyone should witness them at least once in a lifetime.
