Unsolved mysteries in Finland
Finnish tradition is full of very interesting myths, legends and ancient stories. However, one of the discoveries that caught the attention of a wide audience, is a giant rock in balance called: Kummakivi What does “strange stone” mean?.
Kummakivi, the mysterious balanced rock.
This perfectly stable stone is found in the middle of a thick finnish forest located in the region of Southern Savonia. The most surprising thing when looking at the large lithic fragment is that there is a large rock on top of a much smaller one.
At the top is a huge boulder about 7 meters long (22.97 feet). The point of contact between these two rocks is quite small and it looks like the rock above is performing an almost unlikely balancing act.
Looking at it, you can give the impression that it’s on a small mound and that it will fall at any moment. However, it is believed that these stones may have been in the same position for a long time.
the hidden place
As many tourists have tried to find the place, their search has been in vain. It is because the stones are located in a difficult to access areaEven so, there are people who have managed to get there and observe them up close.
The usefulness of stones in balance
It is important to note that the Kummakivi Balanced Rock it is not the only one that exists. This type of lithic fragments are found all over the world, and they are of great importance because They are used as seismographs.. However, it is impossible to determine the extent of seismic activity in various areas.

These remains of rocks were so useful that have obtained “protected status” since 1962. As much as they have been studied, at present little information has been revealed about them. But if it is expected that in the future, scientists can use them to monitor earthquakes.
try to solve the mystery
For a long time, many geologists have tried to decipher how the two stones ended up in perfect balance. And the mystery may have been solved.
One of the scientific explanations assumes that it is a phenomenon that occurred after the last ice age which took place 12,000 years ago. Perhaps when the ice melted it moved large stones from one place to another, however, for many people this explanation is wrong.
Is it possible that it is a simple natural formation?
Thinking that this phenomenon is the result of nature, it is very difficult to believe that they could have remained perfectly stable for centuries. They are two rocks so solid that an attempt was made to move them from the placemany people used their strength and got nothing.
