Also known as fossil.

“The xun (simplified Chinese: 埙; traditional Chinese: 塤; pinyin: xūn; Cantonese= hyun1) is a globular, vessel flute from China. It is one of the oldest musical instruments in China and has been in use for approximately seven thousand years.[1] The xun was initially made of baked clay or bone,[1] and later of clay or ceramic. It is the only surviving example of an Earth[2](also called “Clay”) instrument from the traditional “eight-tone” (bayin) classifications of musical instruments (based on whether the instrument is made from metal, stone, silk, bamboo, gourd, earth, hide, or wood). [3]”
