A post with the photo of a book is being shared on Facebook with the claim that it is a Bible, which was found at the bottom of the ocean. Let’s try to check the authenticity of the image in the post.
Claim: The book in the photo is an ancient Bible, which has been found at the bottom of the ocean and is still readable.
Fact: The book in the photo is a crystallized German-English Dictionary. The book was crystallized using Borax, a chemical. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE..
When the photo in the post was run through Google Reverse Image Search, a blog (“Stuff you can’t have”) with similar images was found in the search results. Catherine Mcever, the author of the blog, writes that the book in the image is a German-English Dictionary crystallized using a chemical solution of Borax. Images of the same book in other angles can be found on her blog. So, the book in the post is not Bible and was not found at the bottom of the ocean.
Other similar crystallized works by an artist, Alexis Arnold, can be found here. To sum it up, a crystallized German-English Dictionary falsely shared as ‘Bible found at the bottom of the ocean’.
