The woman found put on shore a strange mass on Friday, July 3. She published photos of a creature in a local Facebook group and asked its members to put forward their versions of explaining what it is. She suggested that this fish stone, also known as borodavchenko.
Social network users quickly debunked her suggestion. Some of them pointed out that borodavchenko much more similar to stone than a brownish lump with a smooth surface, which she found. “It’s not a fish-stone. In my opinion, more like a soft coral,” wrote one user. “It’s not exactly fish-stone, but it looks ugly,” — said the other.
Someone suggested that the woman found the amber liquid from the intestines of sperm whales that is used in the production of perfumes. “If it is amber, then it is worth a lot of money. But, in my opinion, this thing is harder than it seems,” said one user.
