Any Clue ???

Does anyone have any idea what this might be? Its the first time i ever seen anything like it. It was attached to a copper water line.

Your pic is fuzzy but best I can tell someones frugal attempt to patch a leak and did not have the right size clamp so they just gobbed some junk to make the clamp fit

My thoughts as well. Thanks

I believe its a magnet, some people believe it has an effect on softening “hard” water. Was the water coming from a well?

Tom nailed it.
