A chunk of shiny green rock would catch anyone’s eye, especially one sitting in a dark Siberian cave. And, as excavators inch closer, they realize that this rock has been chiseled and shaped into something – a bracelet. But they also know that this 70,000-year-old accessory could not have been made by human beings.

The cave in which experts made this stunning find sits in Siberia’s Altai area, the least populated of all of Russia’s encompassed republics and districts. This lack of residents makes the Altai’s natural landscape all the more stunning. Indeed, mountains jut from the ground throughout the region, including the tallest peak in the whole district, Mount Belukha
