I found it on a stone slab bank of the Grand river in NW Missouri about 20 years ago. I looked it up years ago and found that these are supposed to be 3"-4" in diameter. I thought I might have something special here ! It appears to have scales like a snake or fish and is coiled up with what appears to be quartz crystal at it's center.
