(Business Insider) – Metal monolith mania has swept the world in the past two weeks. Now, a third metal slab has appeared atop Pine Mountain in Atascadero, California.


Hikers stumbled across the 10-foot-tall, stainless-steel monolith on Wednesday morning. It’s almost an exact match to two other metal monoliths that were discovered in Utah and Romania in the past two weeks.
