    Odd stone.

    My friend gave this to me for my collection. I have no idea what it is or what it was used for. The stone is hard and smooth. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks! DD.Click image for larger version.

    Small tool - Used for grinding? It sure is interesting.

    I'm by far no expert. With that out of the way, I find it hard to believe mother nature created this one. What state was it found in? I have never seen a pestle made like that nor a war club like that. However, I do see pits on the business end of it, which leads me to believe it was a tool of some sort. Possibly a net weight? I would not throw it out regardless of what you may hear on here or any other place for that matter. I'm pretty sure some of the more experienced guys and gals will tune in on it. I can't wait to read their opinions!! Pretty find, regardless of what it is!!

    I agree rebel. You don't think it could be a small club? As you said, interesting!!

    I think it's a geofact . . . a concretion.

    i believe what throws many people off is the fact that it is very symmetric

    I'm not trying to be mr. Smarty pants, but, why is a polished pestle an artifact? It shows no more tooling or wear than this piece. A Celt has a bit, why could nature not do that? Fellas, Larson, Harry, y'all know I respect the two of you,but I have to question you both here.

    Even if it's nature made, I could see it being used.
    Tying leather or green vine to toss across a stream or up over a high tree branch.?
    Would make a nifty double ended hammer too.

    Didn't one of the Flintstone women wear them?lol. On a serious note, I have seen on a web site a pic of a polished stone lizard effigy, that looked nothing like a lizard to me. Could it be an animal abstract type effigy. Jim Maus artifacts is where I saw the lizard. Check it out. If that is a lizard, this could defiantly be a beaver or something. The guy that had that site seems to be reputable also. Lots of good info on his site. The stone here is beautiful regardless. Not a thing wrong with keeping a cool rock. However, I don't think this is just a Rock. Take a lot of scientific proof to change my mind.

    Funny shape! I'm going to have to agree with Harry and Steve. It is just an anomalous water eroded rock, A good conversation piece.
