A slate in a wooden frame which has slots at top and bottom, each containing a wire threaded with five red and five black wooden beads. It is very light, and is possibly not actually made from slate. One side has nine pale grey lines drawn across it, and the other has five very roughly drawn lines from top to bottom.
