Discovery of Turquoise-Like Stones from Burnt City

 

10 February 2006

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeological excavations in Burt City resulted in discovery of some turquoise-like stones for the first time which were found only 5 centimeters below the surface level.

“This excavation was carried out in the blade- making area of Burnt City, where we believe blades such as saw and knife were made of flints" said Mansour Sajadi, head of archaeology team in burnt City.

Objects similar to turquoise stones have been discovered in Burnt City. “These stones have been sent to the geology laboratory of Azad University of Zahedan to be studied,” explained Sajadi.

According to geologists, these types of mineral stones are alien to this region, and they were imported from neighbouring regions, such as Khorasan, which is quite common.
