Geofact

Geofact

[jee-uh-fakt]
A geofact (from a combination of "geology" and "artefact") is a naturally-formed stone formation that is difficult to distinguish from a man-made artefact.

Several purported ancient artefacts, such as the Venus of Berekhat Ram and the Venus of Tan-Tan, are instead thought by many in the archaeological community to be geofacts. Two sites which show an abundance of what are likely geofacts are Calico Early Man Site and the Gulf of Cambay.
