The strange blue strip turns out to be peel-off protective film over the
metal strip of the magnetic clasp, it fits the reader well (i.e. it's
not a generic one, it is designed for the Aura HD).
You have broken all the rules of mystery object posts!
For next time, they are:
At least on the first post, the link is to be broken or point at
something completely unrelated.
The image must take ages to download - usually because it is an
unfeasibly large number of megabytes on an overloaded "free" server with
even more megabytes of advertising and general crap.
The image should be taken at a very unhelpful angle.
It should be blurred. You can achieve this by moving camera, making sure
it is out of focus, or using one of the various blurring tools in
Photoshop et al.
Contrast and brightness are to be compromised by taking picture in a
very dark corner or whiting-out large parts with the flash. Doing photo
under LP sodium street lighting can do wonders for colour rendering.
The actual object must not occupy more than about 20% of the image area.
Ideally other distracting items are in view. Or reflected (c.f. dangly
bits reflected on kettle on ebay).
