    They remind me of the platforms that are holding the points in the air in a wash.

    They remind me of 71 Gremlin door lock knobs but that's not what they are!

    Looks a lot like natural Hematite which is very common at native American sites in my area. I've found about twenty pounds of it in all shapes and sizes. You have, if they are actually Hematite, very cool and unique specimens.

    No mistaking the waxy feeling of soapstone.

    I'm curious if you have run across any sketches or early photos of these being worn?

    Those are very nice. Soapstone is a strange material. I found a little drilled gorget made of it here. Nice body ornaments you have there.

    North American Artifacts

    Incised Soapstone

    These are a very unique group of artifacts, as I (personally) have never come across any mention or photos of this exact type of primitive piercing used in North America. (Excluding Islands and Territories).
    Can anyone enlighten us on this subject with regards to region and the likely cultural time period?
    Is their any information very specific about the use of Steatite for this purpose?

    Mississipian period. Here to be specific is the Dallas period. Related to mound cultures. Most around here are bone. Here are a few a friend showed me.
