WHAT IS THE GREAT PYRAMID MADE OF?
What materials were used to construct the Great Pyramid?
Great Pyramid Stone Blocks
Over 2 million stones are estimated to have been transported from nearby quarries in order to build the Great Pyramid.
The bulk of materials used in the construction of the Great Pyramid are about 5.5 million tonnes of limestone, 8,000 tonnes of Aswan granite, and over 450,000 tonnes of morter.
The primary building material of the Great Pyramid are large red granite blocks.
Today, there is almost no remains of the fomerly great outer surface of the Great Pyramid.
What we see today is the underlying stepped structure which we are all familiar with.
The surface of the Great Pyramid used to be coated in Limestone.
|At completion, the Great Pyramid was surfaced by white "casing stones" – slant-faced, but flat-topped, blocks of highly polished white limestone.
Casing stones can still be found for examination, either reused in nearby buildings, or even in the museums of other continents, including the British Museum.
This limestone casing material is often described as being able to hold electrical charge and is related to a discharge against the Ionosphere.
Joseph Davidovits is widely known for his theory that the stones are synthetic mix, having being poured like concrete, such that the casing stones are able to produce notable electrical effects.
