jetsam

Here is my best explanation:

'that is found on the beach' is the definition.

'stone almost identical' is the wordplay.
'stone' becomes 'jet' (I have seen 'Black stone ' mean 'jet' so perhaps 'stone' could also mean 'jet').
'almost' means to remove the last letter (most of the word but not all of it).
'identical' becomes 'same' ('same' can be similar in meaning to 'identical').
'same' with its last letter taken away is 'sam'.
'jet'+'sam'='JETSAM'
