Some type of a marker or check along the lines of a "tool check." Too large for that I suppose. Do you know the approximate weight of it, Mal?

It is only tiny, see above, and a massive 2.2g but much too small to be any use as tool check.  ;D

For a small tool, perhaps.  :-\

My first impression was a weight, but 14 is odd for a weight. Now, I wonder if 14 could be 14 carat. Combined with 2.2 grams, these are popular specifications for cheap rings, such as this one in the Netherlands, Germany and the Scandinavian countries.
