Artefact from Kandalaksha

Two years ago I received a gray metal fragment which was unusually heavy for its size. The man who gave me the piece alleged that he had brought it from an expedition made to the Russian city of Kandalaksha in 1991, to the place where the catastrophe of an unidentified flying object was allegedly observed. The original weight of the fragment had been of about 10 kg and it was of a bigger size. But it was later cut up for pieces and sent to different research and UFO groups for tests. The researchers say, that was a tungsten piece with an unbelievably high density. However, provisional measuring revealed a lower density than tungsten traditionally has: 17,5 gram per cubic centimeter (when the standard density is 19,3 gram per cubic centimeter). 

I performed tests on the metal fragment at the laboratory of the Perm state technical university on January 26, 2001. The test revealed that tungsten made up 99,9%  of the fragment’s composition. Candidate of technical sciences Gavrilov, the man who performed the test, said that probably the fragment was a part of a big ring, whose technical purpose wasn’t clear. I agreed to meet with Academician Kleiner from the Russian Academy of Sciences, and hope he will explain functions of the construction and its probable practical application.  

It is necessary to find out, where such tungsten rings can be used. It is not ruled out that is belongs to missile technique and probably is a part of a missile stage. Otherwise, it’s not clear how the technological object could drop in a remote part of the Kola peninsula. I would like to know your suggestions and ideas concerning the strange metal object.
