Electrical Plug in Granite




This guy found an Antediluvian Electric Plug in a chunk of Granite - I wonder if the rest of the plug is still encased in the rock?

My Rock's material is solid natural quartz and feldspar granite (very little observed mica; I am not a Geologist) - not an accretion, concretion or pumice - does not contain any resins, cements, glues, limestone, mortar, or other non-granite binding agents - is very hard, is estimated to be at least 100,000 years old, and has embedded in it an electrical-like component (I assume to be a connector of some sort).

I should have titled this post Antediluvia...

"Someone drilled a hole and stuck it in. The sharp edge of the hole compared to the rounded and worn outside of the rock is a dead giveaway. I don't believe the claim of "no glue" for a second."

You don't know much about drilling granite, do you?

"I know quite a bit about slurry and diamond cutting methods. Designed a few machines that did such."

Well then, go take a look at the top photo in that pair and you will see that the edges are not as sharp as you said they were.

"They're far sharper than any other edge on that well-worn and weathered rock. The fact that we can see the side of the hole above the inserted object and below the surface of the rock, and that side is smooth and cylindrical, is another dead giveaway."

However, they are worn - not sharp as they should be, as you originally stated, were someone to have drilled the hole and glued the plug in - but now you are saying that isn't the case?

"They're relatively sharp. That hole and its edges were created long after the rock solidified, long after it metamorphosed, long after that chunk broke away from its parent rock, long after it was tumbled and worn in water. From the slightly rounded edges of the hole, my bet is an abrasive slurry cutting process. Slower than diamond, but cheaper and easier to set up. I notice you have no comment on the wall of the hole above the inserted object and below the surface of the rock. What's your explanation for that?"

That's cause your story keeps changing and now you had to modify it by adding some fancy words.

Point is, in fact, the edges are worn when you said they were not and, in the process, you pretty much verified the genuineness of the artifact.
