What in the world is this?
« on: 30/09/2016 05:10:25 »
Found this at work in Hesperia, CA today, buried in sand. Looked like an egg at first, but I picked it up. Hard as a rock, solid, about as heavy as a ball bearing.  Not a clue what it is, if it's a petrified egg, a very round rock.. I have no idea. Science friends, what the heck is this little sphere of mystery?! Thanks!

  Looks a little like ceramic balls used in the paint industry to disperse paint pigment solids into the liquid paint carrier.They are rotated with all the ingredients in a can or container until the pigment is very finely ground.
