The Al Naslaa rock formation is a rock formation located 50km south of the Tayma oasis in Saudi Arabia. It has been split down the middle into two parts, both of which are balanced on small pedestals. It is still unknown how the center was cut through perfectly, but the exterior shape of the rock formation is posited to be shaped by natural causes including windblown sand and periodic rain.

The rock is approximately 6 metres high and 9 metres wide, and is covered on its south-east face with numerous petroglyphs. [source]
