Stone work at Puma Punku, Bolivia. These stone works are carved out of Granite and Diorite, way back close to 17,000 years ago, and used to fit into each other like a jigsaw puzzle. The only stone harder than Diorite is Diamond. Does that mean primitive man was using diamond edged cutting tools, because we do see unquestionable evidences of machining and tooling at the site. Some evidences that we encounter here are so precise, that it cannot have been achieved through stone edged chisels.
