A Damn Fine Cup of Coffee

See this?
This came out of a horse’s intestine (presumably the one in the background), and it’s called an enterolith or colloquially known as a “horse pearl”.
[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterolith
Equine enteroliths are found by walking pastures or turning over manure compost piles to find small enteroliths, during necroscopy, and increasingly during surgery for colic. Therefore, the incidence of asymptomatic enteroliths is unknown.
Equine enteroliths typically are smoothly spherical or tetrahedral, consist mostly of the mineral struvite (ammonium magnesium phosphate), and have concentric rings of mineral precipitated around a nidus.
So essentially what I’m saying is that OMFG IT’S A UNICORN EGG IT’S REALLY REAL YOU GUYS IT’S A BEAUTIFUL BABY UNICORN AND YOU CAN RIDE IT IRL OMFG SUPER BEAUTIFUL PEARLY MARBLY EGG OMFG

Wow, that’s actually pretty cool. I know a decent amount about horses, but i’ve not heard of this before. It’s like a giant jawbreaker.
