Videos documenting this strange phenomenon have been widely shared online, drawing the attention of researchers and journalists from every corner of the globe. Watch the video below:

“Nu’ng bata ako, ‘yung mother ko, mahilig mamulot ng bato.
Kaya habang lumalaki ako, ito rin ang nakahiligan ko.
Pero ‘yung iba, binibili ko.
Kagaya nu’ng sa kaibigan ko.
Tumawag siya sa akin noon.
‘Mayroon akong bato rito. Pasyal ka.’
‘Yung bato, nagke-create siya ng smoke!
Paglakas ng usok, magpo-produce ng fire!
Kakaiba talaga!
Kaya nagka-interes talaga ako!
Kahit saan mo ikutan dito sa buong planeta, hindi mo makikita, dito lang sa sa Pilipinas!”

Despite extensive examination, scientists remain at a loss to explain the peculiar properties of this stone.

Laboratory tests have identified it as a common mineral, but further study is required to unravel the secret behind its capacity to generate fire.
