The Aztec Calendar stone is one of the most incredibly well-preserved relics of the lost Aztec Empire. The Calendar Stone is generally believed by archaeologists and historians to have been chiseled from stone during a period of the early 1500s. The intricate design is actually much more than simply tribal artwork of the period. It is a highly structured accounting of the cycles of time as perceived by this mysterious indigenous culture.
The Calendar Stone is a massive 12 feet (3.7 meters) in diameter. It's estimated to weigh roughly 24 tons. The stone was rediscovered in 1790 and publicly displayed in Mexico Cathedral in 1850. Being intricately tied to Mexican history, the stone is now part of the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City (Museo Nacional de Antropologia) where it is on display as part of the permanent collection.
