Anundsea stone an unsolved mystery


This is an old case but it’s still unsolved so Id like you all to read about it. In the village Norrbole, Anundsea in northern Angermanland Sweden occurred in July 1950 a strange UFO incident, which left a physical trace in the form of a stone-like lump. Despite studies in several laboratories it has not been possible to determine with certainty its origin.

At 12 o’clock a July day in 1950, the crofter Anton Lindberg Norrbole, 40 kilometers west of Ornskoldsvik view of a round light that came flying through the air from the north. It flew south and was accompanied by a whirring noise. The glow was like a football in size, but how high up it went was hard to tell.

Suddenly he saw something fall from the light globe and landed in a field north of the village road. He went to the crash site and found there a stone-like objects. It had not drilled into the earth, but lay completely visible above ground.

Erland Sandqvist

For UFO investigator and author of the book “Spökflygarna” 1946″ (Spookflyers) Erland Sandqvist, said Jan Erik Lindberg later about what happened:

“When my father took up the subject, it was still hot. But I do not know how long it was between the impact and when he picked it up. It was also the only piece that was found. “

Anton Lindberg put the stone in a box which he put away in the basement because it would not be damaged or is lost. Sometimes he took the stone to show up for any of their associates. But the years passed and eventually fell into disuse.


I moved back to his parents’ home in Norrbole in November, 1981, said Jan Erik Lindberg, Erland Sandqvist. When I and my brother, Uno Berggren was doing clean-up of the house, I saw the box with the stone. I was about to throw it away with other trash when my brother-in-law was wondering what it was that was in the box. I told him what I knew about it, and he was then asked to leave the stone to someone he knew and who was interested in such phenomena.

It was in this way that lucky Erland Sandqvist came in contact with the case. He said it was the strangest items he kept in his hand. It was not like an ordinary stone, but saw most of all like a digest of some kind. He decided immediately to find out what kind of object. But it would offer more difficulties than he had imagined.

Sandqvist started self-examination to determine the object’s specific weight. It was precisely the specific weight along with other data that would later create a mystery. The following presents the results of Erland Sandqvist surveys.

Appearance: The bit is irregular and has an alternating rough and smooth surface. It seems as if it has undergone a melting process. Probably it has been in a viscous state before it solidified into its final form. The ends seem to have gone contrary and have sharp edges. The material appears to have flowed in both directions in the longitudinal direction of the object, from a common centre. A triangular stone is embedded in one side of it.

Colours: surface color is yellow-green (Beige) in which the gray-white colour zones are interspersed. These are similar to the closest cement, or something like that. The fracture surfaces of the object ends has a purple colour, almost the colour of an overheated iron bar.

Other specifications: Anundsea stone is in a non-magnetic material (checked with compass) The 240 grams heavy piece lay on top of the ground when it was found and it indicates that it does not involve a meteorite.

The object has sharp edges, nor is charred and the glazed surface as meteorites have. It must have been in the molten state, heated somewhat, but hardly by air friction.

The object can hardly have come from a satellite or launcher, because these things were present in 1957 when Sputnik 1 was placed in an orbit around the Earth. And an object falling from great heights should have struck deep into the earth, at least, with the specific weight of the stone (Light orb) who apparently was the origin of Anundsea The stone must have been at a very low altitude because it had drilled into the earth .

The man heard a rushing sound that accompanied the globe also suggests that it was on the right near sight, the objects specific gravity of 4.444 g / cm3, place it between chalcopyrite which has specific gravity 4.1-4.3 g / cm3 and pyrrhotite 4, 5 to 4.6 g / cm3.

Erland Sandqvist decided to bring the subject scientifically examined and sent it because the Linkoping Institute of Technology Sweden, which thoroughly examined it, with a scanning electron microscope. Some opinions or definitive answer on what the piece contained could not be leaved. But they guessed that it had been a long time in the Earth!

The assay protocol showed that the article did not contain elements such as silver (Ag), nickel (Ni) and lead (Pb), which are normally present in chalcopyrite. Although oxygen (O) was missing and it was puzzling, as usual rock always contain such. A narrow sliver had been cut away from the object at one end. The cut surface showed dense and uniform, fine grain structure. All the details which emerged during the investigation shows that it does not involve any ordinary object.

Erland Sandqvist was not satisfied with the results of the investigation had been completed, and in 1983, he arranged for a new investigation. This time at the Institute for Metal Research in Stockholm. The survey was now far more extensive than the first. The analysis showed that it was a melt. The material had several phases and consisted of several oxides. It was felt that the subject could be considered as a metallurgical slag – with a composition similar to that of blast furnace slag. But Sandqvist thought the explanation was limping precariously.

The object did not resemble ordinary blast furnace slag. It turned out that the blast furnace slag has a specific gravity of between 2.5 and 3.5 g / cm3, much lower than its 4.444 g / cm3. It should be added that there never was a blast in the area. The riddle was thus still remains.

Sensations magazine National Enquirer in the US has offered a reward of $ 1 million to anyone who can present a positive proof of the presence of what is usually called the “flying saucer”. With the support of the analysis protocol Sandqvist got up, he claimed the great reward. The purpose was to try to obtain funding for a full, unconditional and final examination of the subject.

Erland Sandqvist considers that the Anundsea stone should have been conveyed through the air of a craft and fallen on the field from very low altitude. He concludes his investigation of the case with these lines:

“For the time being we have to settle with what we know today about the subject. Can happen even investigation may shed light on the case. In any case, I welcome any explanation for the piece, no matter what it is. But it would be funny if the presence of UFO Phenomena could be demonstrated by a strike in Angermanland Sweden in the early 1950s.


One thought on “Anundsea stone an unsolved mystery

  1. Certainly there are more modern test’s since 1983. There is a better probability than not that there is physical evidence present and in a lab. Even more likely, some one doesn’t have the resources to properly test what they just fumbled upon.
