Extensive quarrying was done near the city of Aixen -Provence, France between 1786 and 1788, to provide the large quantities of limestone needed for the rebuilding of the Palace of Justice.
In the quarry from which the limestone was taken, the rock strata were separated from each other by layers of sand and clay, and by the time the workmen had removed 11 layers of rock they had found they had reached a depth of some 40 feet or 50 feet from the original level of the area.
Beneath the 11th layer of limestone they came to a bed of sand and began to remove it to get at the rock underneath. In the sand they found the stumps of stone pillars and fragments of half worked rock, the same stone and rock that they themselves had been excavating.
They dug further and found coins, the petrified wooden handles of hammers, and pieces of other petrified wooden tools. Finally they came to a large wooden board, seven or eight feet long and an inch thick. As was the case with the wooden tools, it had also been petrified into a form of agate and it had been broken into pieces.
When the pieces were reassembled, the workmen saw before them a quarryman's board of exactly the same kind they themselves used, worn in just the same way as their own boards were, with rounded, edges.
How a stonemason's yard equipped with the kind of tools used in France in the late 18th century, had come to be buried 50 feet deep under layer of sand and limestone 300 million years old is a mystery even more vexing today than at the time of the original discovery.
For we now know, thanks to advances in geological and anthropological dating, that such a thing is absolutely impossible. And yet it does seem to have happened.

Superfine Holes in Precious Stones & Superfine Thread
These ancient objects and more besides present at least a three fold problem. How was this super fine thread created in the first place? How were these superfine holes created through extremely hard precious stones without damaging the stones. How were the jewelers able to see these virtually microscopic threads and holes without a microscope or similar instrument?
These extremely minute bead balls (top)are the remainder of a necklace which is excavated from an Incan ancient tomb which is located in Lima Peru.
The fact that such a minute hole is bored through this brittle shell material of 3 mm thickness is not possible even with infinitesimal workmanship technology of today.
Originally it means that the super superfine thread was passing as many as 6 to the groove. The problem is what method was used to produce that much micro-thin thread? A thinness of 140 counts (the thinness which with 1 g reaches approximately 283 m) is possible with cotton spinning technology of today, but as for this super superfine thread, it reaches at the highest as many as 250 counts.
The first problem was drilling superfine holes in a brittle material without damage--the second object (bottom) presents a different problem: the mummy which is excavated from a Peruvian graveyard. The mystery is the means utilized for boring the superfine holes through emerald.
Diamonds are designated as hardness 10, the emerald is hardness 7. Only the ruby and the sapphire and the diamond of hardness 10 are harder than emerald. Neither the diamond, the ruby or the sapphire were known to the Andean ancient civilizations. Today, high frequency induction heating could be used or a method such as laser beam, but as for the ancient Andean to whom these artifacts are assumed to belong, no means of accomplishing the high tech, microscopic drilling or manufactoring the thread is known.--Translated
Human bones, foot and handprints and artifacts have been found in rock and coal deposits which evolutionists claim is millions and even billions of years old. If that were true, there would be no way to account for these oddities, since man is supposed to have evolved in the recent past. The geological time frame is very obviously wrong.
A fossilized handprint in rock was found near Glen Rose Texas.
A fossilized human skull was found in coal that was sold in Germany (mid-1800s). A jawbone of a child was found in coal in Tuscany (1958). Two giant human molars were found in Montana (1926). A human leg was found by a West Virginia coal miner. It had changed into coal.—pp. 34-35.
A woman, in Illinois, reportedly found a gold chain in a chunk of coal which broke open (1891). A small steel cube was found in a block of coal in Austria (1885). An iron pot was found in coal in Oklahoma (1912). A woman found a child's spoon in coal (1937).—p. 35.
In 1944 Newton Anderson claimed to have found this bell inside a lump of coal that was mined near his house in West Virginia. When Newton dropped the lump it broke, revealing a bell encased inside.
What is a brass bell with an iron clapper doing in coal that is supposed to be hundreds of millions of years old? According to Norm Scharbough's book Ammunition (which includes a compilation of many such "coal anecdotes") the bell was extensively analyzed at the University of Oklahoma and it was found to contain an unusual mixture of metals, different from any modern usage.
