If anyone ever questioned Ed about how he moved the blocks of
coral, Ed would only reply that he understood the laws of weight
and leverage well. He even built an AC Current generator! This all
from a man with only a fourth grade education. His incredible
feats truly need to be witnessed in person in order to be
appreciated . There is no record of anyone observing Ed carving
in Florida City or in Homestead. He has baffled engineers and
scientists! People have compared Ed’s secret method of
construction to Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids.
He died in his sleep at the age of 64.
Forever carved in stone, the Coral Castle is a timeless beauty
that defines Ed’s undying Love for his “Sweet Sixteen”. Ed’s
stone tribute to Agnes Scuffs, carved by his own two hands will
forever inspire romance in all those that choose to visit the
monumental Coral Castle.

The quarter moon on the right represents the last quarter of the
moon. The third piece of coral is the fountain, which represents
the full moon. The first and last quarters of the moon each
weigh 18 tons. The full moon weighs 23 tons. Ed used this part
as a fish pond. He usually had fish and water hyacinths in the
pond, and expected visitors to stop and look at his pond. He
built a star island in the center of the moon pond fountain filled
by means of an old pump )ocated behind the moon fountain.
Notice the seats built into the first and last quarters of the
moon. These are favorite places for people having their
pictures taken. Today the moon pond is used as a wishing
well. Money taken from the pond is donated to charity.
Entrance to Coral Castle is made through a gate fashioned from
a single coral block weighing nine tons. This miraculous monolith
is approximately 80 inches wide, 92 inches tall, and 21 inches
thick. It fits within a quarter of an inch of the walls on either side
and pivots through an iron rod resting on an automobile gear.
The enormous block balances so perfectly on its center of gravity
that a visitor can easily push it open with one finger.
People who are sensitive to electromagnetic energies fields will
sometimes report headaches while standing inside the archway
of the nine-ton swinging gate - door - thought to be over a vortex
- and a major grid point of the planet.

THIS IS A MYSTERY WORTH SEEING ...........
Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida, is one
of the most amazing structures ever built.
In terms of accomplishment, it’s been compared to Stonehenge,
ancient Greek temples, and even the great pyramids of Egypt. It
is amazing – some even say miraculous – because it was
quarried, fashioned, transported, and constructed by one man:
Edward Leedskalnin, a 5-ft. tall, 100-lb. Latvian immigrant.
Edward Leedskalin was engaged to be married to his one true
Love, Agnes Scuffs. Agnes was ten years younger than Ed;
he affectionately referred to Agnes as his “Sweet Sixteen”.
Agnes cancelled the wedding just one day before the ceremony.
Heartbroken and deeply saddened by this tragic loss, Ed set out
on a lifelong quest to create a monument to his lost love that has
culminated into one of the world’s most remarkable
accomplishments. Ed’s unusual creation is called the Coral
Castle, (it was originally called “Rock Gate Park”).
Leedskalnin labored for
20 years – from 1920 to
1940 – to build the home
he originally called “Rock
Gate Park” in Florida
City. The story goes that
he built it after being jilted
by his fiancée, who
changed her mind about
marrying him because he
was too old and too poor.
After wandering around
the U.S. and Canada for
Leedskalnin settled in
Florida City for health
reasons; he had been
tuberculosis. He began
building his coral home in
1920. Then in 1936,
when a planned new
subdivision of homes
threatened his privacy,
Leedskalnin moved his
entire home 10 miles to
Homestead, where he
completed it, and where
it still stands as a tourist
Ed Leedskalnin wrote several booklets which he sold to tourists as they marveled at his
structure. One of them, called “Magnetic Current” is available to read online at the above link.
In it he reveals the results of two years of experiments with magnets. Perhaps he reveals his
secrets of levitation when he writes:
“The real magnet is the substance that is circulating in the metal. Each particle in the
substance is an individual magnet by itself, and both North and South Pole individual
magnets. They are so small that they can pass through anything. In fact they can pass
through metal easier than through the air. They are in constant motion, they are running one
kind of magnets against the other kind, and if guided in the right channels they possess
How Leedskalnin managed this feat of engineering has remained a mystery all these years
because, incredibly, no one saw him do it. A secretive man, Leedskalnin often worked at night
by lantern light. And so there are no credible witnesses to how the small, frail man was able to
move the huge blocks of rock. Even when he moved the entire structure to Homestead,
neighbors saw the coral blocks being transported on a borrowed truck, but no one seems to
know how Leedskalnin got them on and off the vehicle.
Lots of weird stories have been told and bizarre theories proposed to explain Coral Castle.
And since no witness can dispute any of them, they are all worthy of consideration.
One story says that some curious neighbors did see how Leedskalnin moved the stones.
They say he placed his hands on the stone to be lifted... and sang. Somehow this levitated
the great rocks.
According to an article in Fate magazine, “some teenagers spying on him one evening
claimed they saw him ‘float coral blocks through the air like hydrogen balloons,’
but no one took them seriously.”
Frank Joseph, in the Fate magazine article, also writes, “Alternative science investigators
suggest that Leedskalnin somehow learned the secret of the ‘world grid,’ an invisible pattern
of energy lines surrounding the Earth which concentrates points of telluric power where they
intersect. It was here, at one of these intersections of Earth energy, that he was supposedly
able to move his prodigious stone blocks using the unseen power of our planet.” Yet that still
does no explain how Leedskalnin was able to tap this power, and others cannot.
Coral Castle quotes J. Cathie, a captain flying with National Airways Corp. of New Zealand,
as saying: “Measurements from the Coral Castle position to the zero-degree and 90-degree
longitude lines, when they passed through the equator, also yielded harmonics related to light
and gravity. The final check of the distance between Coral Castle and grid pole A in the north,
dispelled any doubt about the site being in an ideal position to allow Leedskalnin to erect the
huge blocks of coral with relative ease. Measurements from all major points gave the
geometric harmonics necessary for the manipulation of anti-gravity.” Cathie also believes that
this energy grid is also responsible for many UFO sightings.
In an article by called "The Coral Castle Mystery" in Atlantis Rising, author Christopher Dunn
asserts: “What if there’s no such thing as gravity? And the natural forces we already know
about are sufficient to explain the noted phenomena we have labeled as gravity? Perhaps
Leedskalnin’s means of working with the Earth’s gravitational pull was nothing more
complicated than devising a means by which the alignment of magnetic elements within his
coral blocks was adjusted to face the streams of individual magnets he claims are issuing
forth from the Earth with a like repelling pole.”
When he was personally asked how he managed the feat, Leedskalnin replied only that he
understood the laws of weight and leverage. He is quoted as saying, “I have discovered the
secrets of the pyramids. I have found out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru,
Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing
According the The Enigma of Coral Castle, “Ed flatly disagreed with modern science,
and claimed that the scientists were wrong, ‘that nature is simple.’ He believed all matter
consisted of individual magnets, and it is the movement of these magnets within materials,
and through space, that produce measurable phenomena, magnetism, and electricity. These
concepts ‘involved the relationship of the Earth to celestial alignments.’ He claimed to see
beads of light which he believed to be the physical presence of nature’s magnetism and life
force, or what we term today, chi.”
Was Leedskalnin being deceptive when he talked about magnetism and electricity, trying to
make his accomplishment more mystical and mysterious than it actually was? Had he merely
found a very clever way to manipulate the great stones with levers and pulleys? We may
never know the answer. Leedskalnin took his secrets with him to his grave in 1951...
secrets that await to be rediscovered.
