World recognized geologists call Alshar the biggest secret on the Planet, due to the fact that it hides the secret how the Cosmos and the Solar System were born. As a unique natural detector of Sun neutrino, the smallest particle ever known, transparent-red lorandite which has a special in fundamental scientific researches having the leading role to create an artificial lab sun followed by thermonuclear reactions.
It is expected that these researches will help to understand the processes by which energy of the Sun is being generated therefore a new powerful energy source could be created equal to the Sun. It means that small Suns could be produced which could replace atomic centrals and they wouldn't be radioactive. Great interest for lorandite has been shown by NASA, as well as some leading scientific institutes from Austria, Germany and Japan. Smaller quantities of lorandite are also found in USA and China, but Macedonian Alshar has possession of it in the greatest quantities as well as its purest form.
