“The Ica Stones are a collection of andesite stones alleged to contain ancient depictions of dinosaurs and advanced technology. They were reportedly discovered in a cave near Ica, Peru not far from the Nazca Lines.
The Ica stones were popularized by Javier Cabrera, a Peruvian doctor who received an engraved stone as a birthday gift in 1961. Cabrera identified the engraving on the stone as a stylized depiction of an “extinct fish” that lived millions of years before.
From these and other sources, Cabrera collected over 15,000 engraved stones over the next thirty-five years.
The stones come in all sizes. There are small ones that can fit in the palm of you hand while others are more massive. All of the stones have images that have been carved with continuous lines etched into the rock surface. The etching reveals a lighter color than the original dark varnish of age, yet the etched grooves also bear traces of this varnish, indicating that the carving was done in ancient times.
They are a form of Andesite, a gray to black volcanic rock, and a very hard mineral that would make etching quite difficult with primitive tools, a local river rock, covered with a patina of natural oxidation. Laboratories in Germany have authenticated the incisions that make up the carvings as extremely ancient. Nearby fossil finds indicate the area to be replete in bone fragments millions of years old.
Unlike clay figurines that have organic material (i.e. straw) in their composition, there are no organic materials in plain old rock that will tell anything of its age. Traditional radiocarbon dating techniques rely upon organic material (that was once alive) to determine age. The surface of these rocks, however, has a varnish that is the result of bacteria and minute organisms which have adhered to them.
A good black varnish or patina will take thousands of years to discolor and coat each stone. Etching these rocks would have removed the existing varnish, revealing the bare rock. Since these rocks have developed additional varnish in the grooves, it seems likely that they have were carved a long time ago.
The Amazing Depictions of the Ica Stones
Dr. Cabrera’s library is organized by subject matter including physical and social sciences (races of man), (nature) ancient animals, geography (lost continents), and prophecy (the knowledge of global catastrophe).
They have caught the attention of many people inclined to question aspects of modern science, and Creationists and others have used the Ica stones to argue against prevailing scientific theories.

Engraved on one of the rocks, are exactely depicted the famous figurines of the Nazca Lines. Seen from ground level, the Nazca lines are nothing more than lines, but seen from high above, they turn into beautifully designes of animals and birds. This tidely connects the creators of the Nazca lines to those who engraved the Ica rocks.

Dr. Cabrera continued his research with geologists to interpret the maps on several stones showing a weird configuration of the world. Some angles and land masses looked vaguely familiar, but the majority were badly skewered into strange shapes.
"Geologists have confirmed that based on current computer projections, the shapes indicated on the rocks are indeed accurate for the planet Earth, as it was, about 13,000,000 (million) years ago – pre-stone age.” – (Crystalinks.com)
Stones depicting the continents of ancient Earth and pointing to the existence of unknown continents that today remain a part of our collective mythologies:
When questioned, Basilio Uschuya, one of the main provider of engraved stones, told to the local authorities that he was fabricating the stones himself. The penalty for selling artifacts is imprisonment, so his allegation is justifiable.
In my opinion, the first 341 stones ever to be acquired by Dr. Cabrera, from Carlos and Pablo Soldi, were genuine. Probably, the first stones acquired from Basilio Uschuya, as well. When the supply ran out, the poor local might have begun replicating the originals and selling them to Dr. Cabrera.
When the subject gained popularity, other locals might have begun replicating stones and making their living by selling them to the tourists as souvenirs, not originals. But if we are searching for the originals, then Doctor Javier Cabrera’s collection is definitely the right place to find them.
