    I am hoping you can help me prove to my husband and kids that these rocks are actual artifacts and not just random rocks. They usually make fun of me when I proudly pull them out to show people. ď Sure mom, those are ancient Native American artifacts that just happen to be laying around on the beach and out of all the rocks on the beach you spotted themĒ They say. Lol.
    Iíve picked up these rocks over the years mostly on the beaches in Cape Cod where we usually take our family vacations. Iíve compared them to finds other people have posted and some do resemble hand tools but Iím not sure about the some of the others.

    Do I have anything of interest here?

    Thank you so much for your help!

    The biggest mistake new hunters make is "fits my hand". Almost every rock made by mother nature will fit your hand if it is turned enough times. You want to look for signs of being worked, not how it fits a human hand.

    I think they are all natural, and I will not make fun of you. You're learning about what is an artifact, so keep looking!

    Welcome to the forum! They look natural to me too but really cool stones and nothing wrong with liking nice rocks at all. Keep looking and I'm sure you will find something cool.

    Its a starting place where most of us did then when you find the real thing you will know it. I find them dang look alike rocks every time I go. Mother nature can play some tricks on you thats for sure. Keep looking
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.
    Best bug repellent I have ever used bugband.net check it out.
