The "Petrifying Well" where Water Turns Things to Stone

But it seem such kind of people may start living in our real world very soon unless everyone stay away from the "Petrifying Well". The Petrifying Well located in North Yorkshire United Kingdom, is a well that can give any object a stone like appearance. It is said that if an object is placed into such a well and left for a period of weeks or months the object acquires a stony appearance. It was once believed to be the result of magic or witchcraft, but several studies have shown that the phenomenon are actually a natural one, due to a process of evaporation and deposition in waters with unusually high mineral contents.
