      Coral Castle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    • Angela Jeffs

      Coral Castle is a stone structure created by the Latvian American eccentric Edward Leedskalnin north of the city of Homestead, Florida, USA. Slight in stature, he built it alone in great secrecy over a period of 28 years, and no-one understands or has been able to fathom out how he handled such huge blocks of coral into place. What did he know that we do not?

      The most famous of all the structures at Coral Castle was the stone swinging door, which could be conveniently opened by just using your pinky finger. As it turned out, the door operated on a metal rod that had been inserted into the door, which had been drilled from top to bottom by hand. The door sat on a truck bearing that allowed the door to open smoothly, even by a slight change in the velocity of the wind.

    This is what sand looks like when it's been hit by lightning. Called a fulgurite, this is made up of natural hollow glass tubes formed in quartzose sand, silica, or soil by lightning strikes (at 3,270 °F), which instantaneously melts silica on a conductive surface and fuses grains together over a period of around one second.
