Maybe I should raise my prices to compete with rocks...

Hairy stone on sale

A stone growing long white hair was given a price of 10 million yuan (£650,000) at an art exhibition.

The stone, exhibited at the 3rd China (International) Treasure Stone Exhibition, is around 30 cm long and has 15cm long white hair.

Staff of the exhibition say the hair must be the remains of a kind of fungus, which grows on the surface of the stone and makes it look like a hairy head, reports Tianfu Morning News.

I ran across this, today... that's a lot of money for a rock covered in fungus... - DN

I wonder how much a toenail covered in fungus would fetch?
