    Possible nutting stone or grindstone?

    I was exploring the local river in Western mass looking for antique bottles. When I came across this stone with a perfect divot in it. Could it be a grinding stone or some kind of crucible? Sorry I only have one pic. If a possibility I will go back and retrieve it. Thanks in advance for the help.- Justin

    It does look like one pics of it cleaned up a bit would help determine for sure
    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Sure looks like it might be an nutting stone. Often there are several divots. Check the other side. Looks pretty big.

    Found along a river? I'd say the chances are higher that it's a broken piece of bedrock with a boil hole that started to form.

    Looks like it could be a bedrock mortar.

    I reckon it's a mortar.

    Retrieve and clean! If it isn't natural, then you have another cool piece to display. If it is natural, then you have gained more knowledge to decipher next time.
    Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees.
