Shipwreck Blog: Santa Margarita, Florida Keys

Divers from Blue Water Adventures have found a strange artifact while on a hunt for the wreck of the Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de Santa Margarita:

It's theorized to be a combination toothpick and earwax scoop, worn around the neck. You can see that there are marine accretions that have yet to be cleaned off.

Hell. Maybe it's a marrow spoon. People were fond of eating marrow bones back then.
