What catches the TSA's eye

We visited Les, Francine, Josh, Erin and Ethan in Napa 2 weekends ago. We flew up through SFO. Francine gave us this chrystal which she had forgotten to give us some time ago. Since the chrystals are fused together, it is supposed to symbolise a good relationship or marriage.

Anyway, i guess to the baggage screeners trained by the TSA, this looks an awful lot like drugs. So, as they scanned and swabbed my bag, i was trying to figure out why on the way back they were so interested in my bag, but not on the way up.

Word to the wise - watch which stones you put in your carryon.
