Is "bad luck" some object that is considered unlucky? or did something unlucky happen to the stone?

Is there a relevant organisation? any non-human animals involved?
Is there anything in particular which need to be established about the stones' physical appearance?
Is there a relevant country involved?
An event? in history?

Was this by any chance one of Wiley Coyote's fruitless attempts to catch the Roadrunner by throwing a stone at him with the aid of an 'Acme' slingshot!? :)

Failing that...
Type of animal relevant? more than one relevant type of animal?
Would it help to find out which country?
Did an animal eat a stone? trip over it?
