Hundreds of mysterious balls found beneath Mexican temple

The orbs were discovered in the north and south chambers of a tunnel, which was recently explored using a wireless robot named Tlaloc II-TC.

"They look like yellow spheres, but we do not know their meaning," said Jorge Zavala, an archaeologist at Mexico's National Anthropology and History Institute, to Discovery News. "It's an unprecedented discovery."

The balls measure from 3.8cm to 12.7cm in diameter and are made of clay. The yellow colour comes from a coating of jarosite, which is an oxidised form of pyrite (fool's gold). That means that when the temple was operational the balls would have looked like they were made from golden metal.
