The unique three-tiered structure, which is 5ft 2in high, has led local residents to questioned whether the stunning rock could come from outer space.
Held up by strange cylindrical pillars with two disk-shaped layers, the strange stone looks like something out of a sci-fi film.
But what has caused so much excitement is experts are struggling to explain whether the structure is natural, man-made or designed by human-like creatures.
It was discovered by Xia Changjun who said he noticed the stunning shape on a mountainside near Baokang, in central Hubei Province, in China.
This news comes after Chinese villagers were left dumbstruck when a “UFO” appeared to fall from sky and then left behind a burning crater in ground.
Wang Qingxiang, a local historian, commenting on the recent discovery said he was most baffled by its tiered shape and columns.
He suggested the rock, which he identified as basalt stone, could have been used in ancient rituals or as some sort of signalling device during battles.
A number have UFO sightings have been made in China this year – including a strange floating object that brought traffic to a standstill as driver leapt out of their cars to look up in awe.
