    Default A radio crystal, or physical proof of solar system exploration before 1970?

    As a little kid i recieved a strange gift from someone high in the intelligence community who was also close to my Family. All he said was: Here thatīs for you. I was 6 years old at the time, that was about 1976/1977. For some reason I kept it all the time without wondering. That Person died a strange and fast way several years later, my Family and I were in shock at the time and it was hard for all persons related to him. Nobody did expect him to die so quickly. I will not disclose his Name because it is still hard for all that were close to him including me.
    Itīs a Stone in a test tube. The Label sais: Jupiter Crystal. And itīs a little Piece of Jupiter. The Font is German and Fonts like this became popular in Germany since the 1920. I know that Jupiter is regarded as a Gasgiant, but of course thatīs just the outer Layer, at the core itīs solid. As a kid i broke the bottom of the test tube, as you can see.
    Who brought it here and from which program the test tube is from I donīt know. I still have it. Take a look:

    .
    Well, that's fascinating. I looked for "Jupiter Crystal" on the net (eliminating the Oakley glasses, the cartoon character, etc etc) -- no results that matched. And also searched for this ('ΣB'), which I've never heard of, but which must mean something to somebody -- also to no avail.

    Could also be MB with the M turned 90 degrees. If somebody wants closeups of some Details just say it.

    Could it be that the MB stands for; Milton Bradley.
    ''The Milton Bradley Company is an American game company established by Milton Bradley in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1860. In 1920, it absorbed the game production of McLoughlin Brothers, formerly the largest game manufacturer in the United States and in 1987 it purchased Selchow and Righter, makers of Parcheesi and Scrabble. Milton Bradley was taken over by Hasbro, Inc., in 1984.''

    Although somewhat german styled, the tekst is in English, and the style is common in the western world in 1900-1950.

    Maybe it is a requisite of a board game.

    Have you ever had the rock/crystal analysed by some sort of expert?

    I dont think itīs a Boardgame Piece. It was sealed with the sticker when I got it. I did not get it analysed, mostly because I did not want to give it out of my Hands. Most Labs want you to send it via the Postoffice and I dont trust them at all. Sensitive stuff has a tendency to disappear in the mail.

    @Hatemachine:
    Here is the first logo of Milton Bradley

    this is their second logo:

    then they used the logo we know of them (red and blue). Has nothing to do with the Test Tube.

    @Eram: Take a photo of your tiny Box, lets have a look.

    Could it be a meteorite that fell from the sky and someone just had the phantasy to call it a Jupiter Crystal? Or used that name as "brand" to sell such meteorites? There are a lot of collectors who are buying those.

    If it were just a collector of Meteorites he would not make a professional printed and engraved Label. Maybe somebody has seen similar Things or samples or has heard of this ΣB (Sigma B). Unfortunatly I cannot ask the guy who gave it to me nearly 40 years age since he is dead now. I donīt have to get it analysed to know there is a secret behind it. The guy who gave it to me had seen more countries then most People have seen busstops in their life. He was working under Vladimir Putin when he was Chief of the east german secret service. Maybe he got it from the american space program since Crystal is an english word. But thatīs only speculation.

    I don't think it is of much relevance for the thread. Just one of those weird synchronicities that pop up every now and then.

    Any way, here's a pic of it. I put a dice next to it to get a scope of the size.
    While taking the pic, I've been told that it is an old kodak photography film box.

    Apparently Sigma stands for Widsom, as in Sophia, & Beta stands for Honour? None the wiser about what the significance is here, though - any Greeks on the board?
    PS You are very right not to part with the crystals, I lost a strange, beautiful, pyramid shaped yellow stone years ago - it had red thread running through it, & I have no idea how it ended up outside my front door - when I gave it to a geologist friend to investigate, he said he had handed it to someone else to look at, who apparently lost it, so. . . hang onto yours, whatever it is.

    UZN,

    On what basis are you claiming that the font is German and became popular in 1920? As far as I am aware, Fraktur was the most popular script/font that was used in Germany around that time and even until the end of WW2.

    That was my best guess. I got it in Germany from a german who was working for a german secret Service. But it could be from any Country/Agency. With the Font it was also just a guess since Fonts like these were not used in Germany before round about 1920. Just guessing there. It was in perfect shape when I got it 40 years back.
