The Pag triangle is the name for a megalithic imprint in the form of an isosceles triangle (32 metres (105 ft) and two sides both measuring 22 metres) on the island of Pag in Croatia. It was discovered in 1999 during survey work on a quarry site. The structure of the stones in the triangle differs significantly from the stones located outside the triangle. According to studies by Croatian geologists, the rock inside the triangle shows red phosphorescence when exposed to ultraviolet rays, which means that the area inside the triangle has been exposed to extreme temperatures in the past. The red phosphorescence is only visible on the side of the stone facing the earth, as it has been washed off over the years by weather and sunlight. Similar properties have not been found in any stone near the Pag triangle. Thermoluminescence dating is said to have resulted in the age of the heating to be approximately 12,000 years.
The discovery of the triangle caused a sensation among ufologists, and it is estimated that more than half a million curious people and tourists visited the site, especially after reports of mysterious lights that appeared. Due to various speculations and rumors about the supernatural powers of the stone or as a healing substance, many visitors have removed parts of the stone from the Pag triangle, so that there are holes in some places of the triangle. Because of this devastation, the city of Novalja protected the area where the triangle is located in 2000.
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
