The Legend of the Baton of Beaumont

The Baton of Beaumont is a long, carved, staff several feet in length and three inches thick in diameter.  It is said that anyone touching the staff will "become beautiful forever." Originally found in an ancient fishing boat in the Agean Sea, it is rumored to be the same staff used by Moses to part the Red Sea.  It is also rumored to have been given to Moses' grandson, Aaron, who was a fisherman.  During a fishing trip, a storm sank Aaron's boat.  The staff was found in 1972 in the Dead Sea as part of a basin erosion study being done by the University of California's Oceanography Department. The staff was then stolen from the university archives and its location remains a mystery to this day.
