You're going to want to touch it; you're definitely going to want to run your fingers over its wavy lines.
This 2.5-tonne lump of rock will be one of the new star exhibits when London's Natural History Museum re-opens its front entrance-space in a couple of weeks' time.
The Hintze Hall has been closed for most of this year to allow the South Kensington attraction to remodel its welcome to visitors. Out has gone "Dippy" the diplodocus dinosaur, and in its place has come a massive skeleton of a blue whale.

Two teams of students from Laurentian University's Bharti School of Engineering won top honours at a major mining competition in Toronto.
The teams earned first and second place at the Ontario Mining Association's Mined Open Innovation Challenge.
For the competition, teams of students drew up plans to expand operations at a mining site where new ore deposits had been discovered. The challenge was to tap into the new resources using innovative technologies and practices, without negatively affecting health, safety, the environment, and a nearby community.
The District Municipality of Muskoka is offering rain barrels to residents at subsidized rates to promote water conservation and assist in managing storm water run-off.
"Rain barrels reduce stress on Muskoka's waterways and groundwater reserves and save residents money by decreasing the amount of municipally treated water used for yard and garden purposes," says Michael Duben, chief administrative officer at the District of Muskoka.
Since developing her passions early on within the geological field to working currently as a beloved professor at Queen's University, Heather Jamieson is getting some serious recognition.
One of only three women to receive such a prestigious achievement, Jamieson has been awarded the Peacock Medal for 2017.
"The president of the Mineralogical Association of Canada sent me an email," Jamieson described receiving the news of her award. "That doesn't sound very exciting, but it was!"
In the mysterious world of diamond mining, it turns out that some stones are too big to sell.
Canada's Lucara Diamond will have to cut its tennis ball-sized rough diamond to find a buyer, industry insiders say, following Sotheby's failed auction for the world's largest uncut stone last summer.
It's not the ending that William Lamb wanted for his 1,109-carat stone, named "Lesedi La Rona," or "Our Light" in the national language of Botswana where it was mined.
"It's only the second stone recovered in the history of humanity over 1,000 carats. Why would you want to polish it?" said Lucara's chief executive.

The Ring of Fire mining development in Northern Ontario appears to be back on track. Noront Resources will brief local representatives on its plans for a ferrochrome processing facility in the North.
The presentation, to members of a partnership group from Thunder Bay and Fort William First Nation, will be given by Alan Coutts, president and CEO, and Stephen Flewelling, chief development officer of Noront, the main player in the rich zone 400 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay.
The area has shown evidence of a major chromite deposit and other minerals. Chromite is used in the manufacture of stainless steel.
Work will begin almost immediately on a $5.5 million project to improve wastewater services in the Sault's Ward 2 area, it was announced at Civic Centre recently, thanks to some federal and provincial government funding.
Sault MP Terry Sheehan joined Sault Mayor Christian Provenzano to announce the federal government will be providing up to $2.1 million for a project that will improve wastewater infrastructure on top of the hill in the McNabb Street area and catch basin located there, which is susceptible to flooding.
As Canada aims to move away from the resource industries that have traditionally fuelled its economy, increased demand for green technologies may in fact benefit one of the country's oldest industries: mining.
No fewer than 14 of the 19 metals and minerals needed to build photovoltaic panels are found here, according to a recent report from Clean Energy Canada, a think tank based at Simon Fraser University. As a result, "Canada could emerge as a key supplier of resources for the buildout of solar power," the report states.
