    Welcome to Treasure Net !!
    Indian 'metate' is my guess.
    Place something next to your idea for scale, please.

    Yes size would help in the guessing also where you found it as in state or dry land. Welcome to the site.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.
    Best bug repellent I have ever used bugband.net check it out.

    It has all the characteristics of a cupulet but did you scratch the patina in the cup? Glad you joined and posted. There a lot more knowledgable than me. Lets see what they say. It sounds like you are in a good area for artifact hunting.
    Welcome to artifacts.
    Please read our rules and enjoy the site. TreasureNet.com Rules

    All finds posted by me are from private property with landowner permission.

    Wow! two posts in two and a half years! Sure hope you can post some more of your finds!
    Could be one of those nutting stones?

    Thanks TN...no, the grooves were there...that was one of the main reasons I was thinking it might be an artifact..Good to be here! Thanks for the welcome! Funny, I've already got more help here than at the museum...they have a trade and ID center and didn't really have any idea what it was...but I think they are just students...

    Considering the size, my guess would be a capstone for a bow drill or firestarter.
