Do You Know What This Is?

We’ve been seeing this stuff while diving for years.  Much speculation over many beers has not produced a convincing explanation of just what it is.  Some say it’s poo.  I say, “Poo!” to that.  I think it might be egg casts from some kind of bêche-de-mer (or sea cucumber, if you prefer).  The ‘beads’ are about the size of large pearls.  If fact, it looks like a necklace made of cement.  You can pick it up as a string, but it is very delicate and falls apart at the merest flick.

Anyway, here’s a photo of the stuff:
