Traveller gets his rocks off

Actually, it's one rock, and it gets confiscated.

The rock in question was a geological specimen, being carried by a geologist on his way to a conference.
My banded chunk of the Hebron Gneiss (pronounced "nice") resembled a broken slice of layer cake composed of licorice and cream cheese.

Apparently, a rock counts as a "dual-use item", meaning it could be used as a weapon, and that's not gneiss.
