TEL AVIV – A mysterious gold object discovered in a Jerusalem cemetery turns out to be a “diffuser of positive energies” available on the web, Facebook users informed the Israel Antiquities Authority. 

 On Tuesday, Breibart Jerusalem reported that the Authority had been stumped for months by the 8.5 kilogram item found by a maintenance worker in an old building on the grounds of the cemetery.
After subjecting the object to a series of tests and X-rays that failed to determine its purpose, the authority’s last resort was to turn to Facebook and harness the “wisdom of the crowd.”
The crowd complied, and within hours the object was identified by Micah Barak, an Italian man, as an “Isis Beamer” — and no, it has nothing to do with that ISIS. The device, which is used as a shield from harmful radiation by “harmoniz[ing] geopathic and electromagnetic radiation fields,” can be bought online for a few hundred euros. 
The cylindrical tool is named after the Egyptian goddess of nature and is so durable that it can withstand a bomb detonation, as attested by the controlled explosion Israeli police forces carried out after the cemetery worker discovered the suspicious package.
As to how it ended up in the cemetery in the first place, well that particular mystery has yet to be solved.
