Dear Roy,

Love the web site, your interesting artefact at first glance reminds
me of something I saw about ten years ago in a Forensic Post Mortem.
During a gastroscopy they had perforated the stomach wall through an
ulcer and around the perforation were these clusters of material not
unlike in the photos.  The best answer we could arrive at was some
kind of lubricant used on the gastroscope,  why this particular shape
was seen was unknown.  Testing of the lubricant used in the clinic
showed material,  which was strongly PAS positive when smeared and
air dried onto a slide.

I don't know if this helps! or hinders the argument.
