This is a “Pluton”
What you are looking at is what is called a “pluton”. It’s a natural phenomenon that rarely occurs in nature. They where given the name “plutons” in honor of the Roman god Pluto, the king of the underworld. They are formed below the earth’s surface which is why they are named as such.
Billion years ago, when the magma from volcanic rock crystallized below the surface of the planet, forming these circular rings of a mysterious symmetry, they eerily resemble a impact crater or caldera but are actually neither. The Kondyor Massif, located in Russia, is what geologists refer to as an “intrusion”.
This 6-kilometer-wide Pluton is located 1100 kilometers north of the city of Khabarovsk (Coordinates: 57°35’N, 134°40’E). The formation itself is rich in platinum and is the site of massive Russian platinum mine. Mining commenced at Kondyor in 1984 to 2011, the mine has produced about 3 million ounces of platinum. Over the last ten years average platinum production at Kondyor was about 120 oz per annum. Other precious metals also come out of the mine such as gold and silver. Kondyor also produces gold, which can be found encrusted in the platinum crystals, resulting in curious formations of natural jewellery.
If this isn’t enough, Kondyor produces its own unique mineral known as “konderite”, which is a combination of copper, platinum, rhodium, lead and sulfur alloy, which allows geologists to know this place’s internal structure, and to deduce the processes that led to the formation of this awe-inspiring location.
