A Tuscaloosa man named Claude Ball has found a rock in Lake Tuscaloosa and he says it's worth more than $12,000.  He says it's valuable because it's "a Bama rock made by the hand of God!"

The rock is white with a crimson A in the middle and he claims under a microscope it's perfection.  Mr Ball claims to have turned down offers of more than 5k and even was offered a Sea Doo Jet boat as even trade.

"I was picking up rocks in Lake Tuscaloosa in a rock skipping contest with my wife when I found the Bama gem" says Claude.  He went on to tell 95.3 The Bear "my wife thinks I'm crazy but daddy wants a new car!"  #WildBillShow
