Here’s a collection of man-made and natural balanced rocks from around the world. Rock balancing is an art,

discipline or hobby that involves placing some combination of rock or stone in arrangements which require

patience and sensitivity to generate, and which appear to be physically impossible while actually being only highly

improbable. There are 3 styles of rock balancing; the first is Pure Balance – each rock in near-point balance; the

second is Balanced Stacking – rocks laid flat upon each other to great height, and; the third is Free Style – mixture

of the two above; may include arches, etc.
