The WILLIAMS PETRADOX" or "The WILLIAMS ENIGMALITH"
The circumstances of my discovery: I found my Rock in a rural area, at least 25 feet from the nearest trail (which was dirt and faint), not near any urban areas, industrial complexes, electrical or electronic establishments, nuclear facilities, airports, or military operations (that I was aware of).
The immediate ground was undisturbed. I was hiking in shorts. One of my instruments indicated on the other side of a pair of dense bushes.
I rashly thought that the best way of reaching that area was to pass between the bushes.
However, when I tried, the bushes began to painfully poke and scratch my legs. To get through, I vigorously shuffled my feet and stumbled out onto the other side. Once on the other side, I looked down at my ankles to inspect the damage, and then noticed my Rock a few inches from my heel.
The only thing visible of the component was the tip of its three pins. I immediately recognized the pattern as being similar to that used in electrical connectors, and picked it up.

It was definitely a Rock that I had just kicked up because it had a layer of moist loose dirt and some pliable root strands sticking out of it - evidence that it had been completely buried between or very near the bushes.
I don't know how deep it was buried or the type of soil - perhaps as much as a couple of inches - or exactly where it had laid.
The bushes were fairly large, and of a species that I believe lives for many decades. Once I cleared away the loose dirt and roots, I found that my Rock was encased in a hard layer of dried mud or clay.
I later spent hours scraping, brushing, probing and washing away the mud/clay to get a clear view of my Rock and its component.
For fear of ridicule and Government and skeptics harassment and possible persecution of my family and I to rip-off or destroy my Rock and discredit me, and also to give me the time to try to find some manmade explanation for it, I quietly and secretly held on to it for several years...

Just a shot in the dark:
Remember the Philadelphia experiment, where people and loose stuff got stuck "inside" the ships steel after the experiment.
Maybe this is such a result from wrong going time experiments.
