Megalithic Ruins of Nan Madol (Pohnpei, Micronesia-200 BC)* The exact origin of the stones of Nan Madol is undetermined. Some stones weigh as much as 50 tons. The entire city contains an estimated 250 million tons of the prismatic basalt rock."None of the proposed quarry sites exist in Madolenihmw, meaning that the stones must have been transported to their current location. Some modern Pohnpeians believe the stones were flown to the island by use of black magic.
