    Welcome to Tnet!! I'm new to artifacts. I'm sure that it's awesome, but what is it and what is it made from?

    Kindest regards,

    Ok. Thanks for the answers. I'm now convinced that it's an awesome catlinite disc pipe. Next question: Was there a purpose to the disc (e.g. to block the wind when lighting up the smoke) or was it simply for aesthetics?

    Kindest regards,
    Kantuck

    more pics would be nice of that would be nice.

    I'd guess the platform had a few functions. One being to help dissipate heat.

    One of the strangest pipe designs which generally existed without change for close to a 1000 years. Same design encompassed a large geographical area in the midwest. This one is from western Ky.

    There are many catlinite reproductions out there. Many with COA's.

    Don't buy into a relic being authentic just because it has a COA.

    Thomas Amble, a Central States Archaeological Societies Minnesota state officer is one of the most knowledgeable persons I am aware of on catlinite relics.
