The Object of Aiud also known as Aluminum Wedge of Aiud is a wedge-shaped object found 2 kilometers East of Aiud, Romania, on the banks of the Mures river in 1974. According to the sole article on it written by Boczor Iosif, a contributor to Hungarian paranormal magazines, it was found under 35 feet of sand and alongside 2 mastodon bones. His article also claims it was found in 1973.
The object was allegedly taken to the Archeological Institute of Cluj-Napoca to be examined, where it was found to be made of an alloy of aluminum. The wedge was also encased in a layer of oxide no less than a millimeter thick, which is said to indicate an age of at least 300 to 400 years old. It is not mentioned what dating technique was used.
According to the article mentioned above, by Boczor Iosif, it was examined a second time in Lausanne, Switzerland, with the same results. It was not mentioned which establishment carried out this second analysis.Florin Gheorghita, for one, had the opportunity to examine the report, and the analysis performed under the direction of Dr.Niederkorn of the institute for the study of metals and of non-metallic minerals (ICPMMN), located in Magurele, Romania, emphasized that it is composed of a alloy of extremely complex metal.
Gheorghita affirms that the alloy is composed of 12 different elements, of which he has succeeded to establish also the volumetric percentage of the aluminum (89%). He identified the presence of Copper (6,2%), silicon (2,84%), zinc (1,81%), lead (0,41%), tin (0,33%), zirconium(0,2%), cadmium (0,11%), nickel (0,0024%), cobalt (0,0023%), bismuth (0,0003%), silver (0,0002%), and gallium (in trace amounts).
This artifact is considered anomalous because aluminum was not discovered until 1808 and not produced in quantity until 1885. http://files.abovetopsecret.com/files/img/hz521b483a.jpg hi everybody
