More on Vitrification

The discovery of Alfredo Gamarra that  vitrification exists on many stones of the Inca sites of Cusco and the area around it including the famous places as Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Pisac, Chinchero, Sacsayhuaman, Tiahuanaco and Puma Punku in Bolivia and many more sites not wel known to the public, has till now been largely dismissed by both orthodox science and alternative investigators, who in mayority seem to prefer to explain giant and precise megalithic stonework with laser beams, giant machines, giant saws, high velocity drills and other machinery. In most cases they suggest that it were Ancient Aliens that must have been the actors that used these fantastic machines or tools as nothing else seems to explain the stonework.
What is vitrification? It is the transformation of a substance into a glass. In this case it is stone that must have been heated to become glasslike. To be clear what we are talking about, the vitrification at the Inca sites is different than the vitrification that is known to exist in some old forts of Europe, especially the vitrified forts of Scotland are well known.  Here the vitrification seems to have melted together the small stones. The cause here might have been a giant fire (although some say the heat would not have been enough to cause vitrification), or some other unkown type of catastrophic event.
 The big difference with the vitrification found at the Inca sites is that here the vitrification is intentionally applied, causing an even and thin layer on several parts of the most advanced stonework. It is quite obvious that is has not been caused by some natural disaster or an uncontrolled, giant fire. No, the vitrified stones are especially those that have a look as having been molded, those that form the perfectly fitting walls, and those that look as having been cut like cheese.
The repetition of this in all mentioned sites and in many more near Cusco and in Peru, see also my website here, and according what could be detected on pictures of similar stonework around the globe, means we have to do with a global phenomenon. An important discovery of Alfredo Gamarra that of course needs more investigation and geo-chemical analysis of stonework to become an irrefutable scientific fact. But the visual information that we have available, and the analysis of a sample that  indicates the existence of a thin layer with high content of silicon, makes it already hard to deny, and makes it less probable that the ancient must have been polishing with endless patience.
During one of my last visits to Peru I have inspected more stones and a few more sites on vitrification, confirming (again!) the existence of it. See here some of the latest pictures on this:

  3. Great work Jan! The New Earth Channel also reports on these anomalies and geo polymers. It does appear many stones have been molded into shape rather than quarried. These glassy looking surfaces are very telling!
