It’s a chicken. He should have sold it.
Looks like a coprolite to me. Maybe a Mo’ turd.
Looks like someone carved a ham hock into it.

A gramme is a unit of measure (weight) in the Metric System which was created in the 19th Century, approximately 1,300 years after the purported date of the stone object. What a coincidence!
that really looks familiar. Now I know what it looks like a “deer turd”. Gee, i see a lot of these up here in the UP of Michigan. Some are pellet like but there are some do look like this too. a deer turd could be sacred too.
Abdul Muttalib? Isn’t that the name of the moron who stuffed incendiaries into his underwear and burned his “junk” off over Detroit a couple of years ago?
I picked up something like that in my backyard today.
Got to get some Chinese to crank out a few million of these ... sounds like the ME market for fake relics is ripe for the picking. Besides Chinese chicken scratching is indistinguishable from Arabic chicken scratching so any mistakes would be easily missed even by experts.
That is a sling projectile. There are tens of thousands of the them in that area. Four million for one them is like paying 25 thousand for a black velvet painting of a tiger.
How long has "gm" been a valid unit of measure? If it is an abbreviation for "gram" it doesn't add up: Originally defined as "the absolute weight of a volume of pure water equal to the cube of the hundredth part of a metre, and at the temperature of melting ice" (later 4 °C), a gram is now defined as one one-thousandth of the SI base unit, the kilogram, or 1×10−3 kg, which itself is defined as being equal to the mass of a physical prototype preserved by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures. It was the base unit of mass in the original French metric system and the later centimetre-gram-second (CGS) system of units. The word originates from Late Latin gramma a small weight.
If not short for "gram" what weight unit is it?
