I just found out about this..
it is (or was) used to draw
poison and or infection out
of a wound. This "stone"
is found in the stomach of
a deer or cow..presumably a
sort of calcified hair ball
type object...typically it
was boiled in milk and placed
on a wound, where it would
stick until it had drawn out
the toxins. especially rabies.
Also known as bezoar.
