    Rocks with holes.

    We sure get a lot of people that post rocks with holes in or through them that resemble artifacts. I thought I'd post a few of the rocks I've drug home.Click image for larger version.

    First pic top is an artifact, the rest are all natural. Of the natural ones, 2 are deep and hollow enough they could have been used for small storage, seeds or somethings small. Second pic lower right piece looks like natural hole possible being modified. Others may have had some use, but there is nothing man-made about them apparent to me. The three in the last pic are the only ones that have made it into the big case. Now THEY show some sign of use.

    These are all just my opinion on these stones, and everyone is entitled to post their stones and opinions here too.

    Ive never found one with a hole in it like those. It would probably fool me if I had found one. So what cause the hole in the natural ones to form?
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    I think when you click on the photo a couple times you can get all the magnification you could need. Even zoom to the spot. At least it works for me. Note the high polish in the paint pot and cap stone last pic.

    here's another oneClick image for larger version.

    Most of those rocks are called omars.

    Cool. We are at the edge of the last glacial push here. That explains a lot. I think I will have to start picking them all up now.

    I have found many stone that look like this near a little "off the grid" berg named "Bolinas" in nearby Marin County, CA. I was able to determine what caused these holes because rocks lying right next to them still held the "secrets" within them: Shells from the "Cambrian" geologic era encased within the sandstone that later were "washed out" by waves and constant rolling around in the sand. I would look for mention of Cambrian era sandstone beds or cliffs nearby in the same area...

    Native Americans were always taking whatever characteristics the natural objects they found around them had and then capitalizing or enlarging/refining these characteristics to fit their own needs. I wouldn't be surprised to discover that they might have taken stones with naturally occurring holes in them like this and then used them with small "pestles" to grind herbs for medicinal or culinary uses.

    Quito, I would have brought those in also. I have the feeling you knew that already. Lol! If you don't mind my asking, what type of landscape or setting are most of these found? Near or in water? In sandy areas, grassy areas? The question at large is what in nature causes such uniformed concavity on one face of a stone? Cool post!
