Ancient geopolymer in south-American monument. SEM and petrographic evidence

Abstract : The make-up of the sandstone megalithic blocks, weighing between 130 and 180 tonnes each, from Pumapunku -Tiwanaku, Bolivia, was compared with three geological sandstone sites from the area. The SEM/EDS, XRD and thin section results suggest that the sandstone megalithic blocks consist of sandstone grains from the Kallamarka geological site, cemented with an amorphous ferro-sialate geopolymer matrix formed by human intervention, by the addition of extra alkaline salt (natron) from the Laguna Cachi in the Altiplano, Bolivia.
