    granite readily takes that shape, I can find those all day long on the beach. I would say 100% natural.

    I agree. Looks natural to me too.

    Yo, Fred

    Ran into this on the internut & tried sending it to you as a reply to your PM. Then as a new PM. When that didn't work either, used the search feature to (try to) find your post. When THAT didn't work, searched every post you've made until I found it. Lotta hassle for a not-that-big-a-deal.

    Thanks for the PM of the video. Tried to reply but no go. Deleted some PMs, thinking that might be the problem, but not so. Looks like I can receive them but not reply.

    Wish the pic was clearer on that piece, almost a looks like carving on it. I try and forget a lot of those posts I made.

    Sure, in some places you can, no doubt.

    In many other similar places you wonít find a one.

    in over 45 years of pouring concrete and having had thousands of loads of gravel hauled into various job sites, and grading millions of square feet with it I can assure you we donít have them here naturally. So, that being said, The other day find this at the bottoms edge of a pile like it rolled right out.

    Itís the same
    material often found used in other hardstone artifact forms around here.
    Im thinking mine isnít natural, and there a chance that Fredís just may not be natural as well.
    the two in the first pics are disc shaped and highly polished. The other a grooved maul.
