    Interesting piece of 'industrial' art (my name for it), not seen one before.

    Looks like a stone monument set by a land surveyor; a rather important one actually.

    I'd ask the county surveyor, or if they don't have those in NC, a local one.

    These things cost thousands of dollars to set, and they will not endear you to land owners if they are disturbed. Most places it is illegal to disturb them and there is no treasure under them.

    It looks like "The All-Seeing Eye" carved on the stone.

    While trying to get everyone together at the same time to get someone that actually knows what they are looking at Ive ben scrtching my head trying to figure out what the symbol is/means. The "All Seeing Eye", its does look similiar but again I dont know. And as for a land marker.. Maybe? Ive been burning up Google trying to identify anything of the sort and so far I cant explain it. Does anyone have any ideas or maybe a web-site link that could help? And this IS a long shot and Im no doubt going to get some laughs at this one but could it have anything to do with the Knights Templar? Just eliminating possibilties here guys..lol

    I suppose they could have needed to make some soap too...

    Did you google "lye leaching stone"?

    Where is this thing?

    Context is important, or at least the next step in figuring it out.

    the reason for only one picture"ticm" is because my cousin and myyself were finishing up a camping trip when the camera that we (which had most of the pictures) had went swimming to the bottom of a lake on our way back with the only other picture from a cell phone which is what you are looking at on this thread. I know its a crummy picture and being the only one is not helping with identifying and/or helping gather information on it. For that I appoligize, however I plan on re-visiting the site very soon to gather alot more in-depth photos of both the stone and the area. im going to treat the area as if Im Reconing it for the Corps again lol. just without the M4 and gillie suites this time. ...

    Bum Luck.. it is just outside of the uwharrie national forest in NC. its on private property and is very romote. I have full permissions to be on the property as I please so thats not going to be a problem. There are no creeks within roughly 500 yards, the terrain is fairly rough with alot of steep hills and rocks. The rocks by the way still seem to have been removed from a 20'-30' area and are also nothing like the one the stone is made of. the surrounding rocks are both small to very large and mostly quartz and granite. Im not sure what type of rock this stone is made of but it just looks nothing like the native ones lying around. I have not disturbed the ground around or under the stone, I'll leave that to Mr.Bramlettand the other experts. When all of this takes place I will be sure to post any and all of the infromation as well as answer any qeustions on the matter. Thanks to everyone for your help so far.

    woody,

    Here's a link to the NGS web site for North Carolina:
    NCDENR - NC Geodetic Monuments

    That lists the NGS survey monuments, but of course wouldn't list another kind. I does give you an idea what's out there though.

    I believe that I've seen this same stone posted either elsewhere on this forum or on another. I am fairly certain it was here though...maybe treasure in the news or treasure stories?
