[I found this years ago]
While taking a break along the Trans-Canada Highway just outside of Thunder bay, Ontario this rock caught my eye along the shoulder of the road. I have shown it to numerous people in attempts to identify what it is and so far no one has a clue.
As you can see, it is a cube of almost 2 inches on all sides. That (in itself) is remarkable as is the fact that right angles are almost nonexistent in nature.
This rock is extremely heavy given its size, has absolutely no machining or tool marks (as in saw, press marks or chisel) and is definitely not magnetic. I have used several various strength magnets in attempts to determine if it contains iron (given its weight).
I have had it for about ten years and once attempted to drill a hole into it so as to convert it to an incense holder. It is impregnable even with a carbide tipped drill bit.
This little rock has ONE OTHER unique characteristic. I have fun with a compass and the rock. A compass, at rest and aimed due north moves radically when the rock is brought into close proximity to the compass. The compass needle jumps quickly counterclockwise if the rock is anywhere within six inches.
I have a hunch that this rock has a story to be told.
Does anyone have an idea what it is?
