Costesti village, which lies near the road between Ramnicu Valcea of Targu Jiu, Romania can observe the wonders created by nature. There are sculptures in stone, with bizarre shapes, some small, others out at the height of a man who emerged as people exploit the sand quarry.

These formations are called trove or popular "living stones". They say it would be over 6 million years old and would have occurred due to local cementing of sand, possibly due to a seismic activities. Most trove of Costesti ellipsoidal in shape.

Locals insisted that after a long rain of small rises trove wet sand and stones actually grow larger.

This theory is confirmed.

It is a natural phenomenon that deserves to be seen. Here is the only museum in the world of trovantilor.
