HA NOI – Five-stones of a musical instrument believed to date back 3,000 years has been found in central Binh Thuan Province.
Farmer Ho Giap of the province's Duc Linh District found the pieces while working his field.
Binh Thuan Museum director Nguyen Xuan Ly said the trapezium-shaped instrument was created from the dark green stone. Based on its shape and the materials, it could be three millenniums old.
One of the graduated five pieces of the instrument, which has been given to the museum for further study, is broken.
A similar stone instrument was found earlier in the same location. – VNS
