Are particles with gravitomagnetic charge possible or excluded? [duplicate]

Are particles with a sole gravitomagnetic charge (gravitomagnetic monopoles) possible? Does the theory exclude this possibility? Were there attempts to find such particles, similar to the search for ...

What is the mass in $\vec{\nabla}\cdot \vec{B}_g=\text{something}$ called if it could be non-zero?

Maxwell's equation for gravity has $$\vec{\nabla}\cdot \vec{B}_g~=~0,$$ see Gravitoelectromagnetism in analogy with the electrodynamics. What is the mass called that needs to make these equations ...

Do semiclassical GR and charge quantisation imply magnetic monopoles?

Assuming charge quantisation and semiclassical gravity, would the absence of magnetically charged black holes lead to a violation of locality, or some other inconsistency? If so, how? (I am not ...

Are gravitomagnetic monopoles hypothesized?

My understanding is that gravitomagnetism is essentially the same relativistic effect as magnetism. If so, why is it that I've heard so much about magnetic monopoles, but never gravitomagnetic ...
