These spheres was first discovered by The United Fruit Company in 1930’s in Costa Rica where they were creating a banana plantation.

Several of the spheres were destroyed before authorities intervened. Some of the dynamited spheres have been reassembled and are currently on display at the National Museum of Costa Rica in San José.
