To Australia’s Aborigines, who are native to the land of Oz, the Devil’s Marbles are called Karlu Karlu. These are giant round granite red boulders with a background of a beautiful landscape. Some are 50 centimeters and others are 60 meters across. Some seem to have been posed in strange positions, like balanced on top of each other. The Devil’s Marbles, it has been told, were formed millions of years ago where molten magma came below sandstone and cooled to form granite. The wear and tear over the years and environment factors caused erosion and other such issues to leave what we see today as the amazing Devil’s Marbles. The Australian Aborigines hold some spiritual significance to this site and what it contains.
