At first I thought it was a tooth but then I saw how big it is...

So did I. It's about 50 lbs.

Here's a wild guess. If it's hardened clay or a softer type stone, it could be a section that has worn away from the main piece of ground. The hole could have been formed many years ago from a rodent, snake, very early large prehistoric worm, or even water running through a small crevice in the earth. As mentioned- just a wild guess.

Even if it turns out to be nothing I'm going to keep. It will remind me I need to be out looking.

I did a lot of caving when I was younger. The hole looks like it was caused by water abrasion, but it is hard to tell for sure.

The hole could be from grinding grain, It looks like it could be part of a larger stone at one time....Maybe part of a larger grinding stone....jmho....HH

A lot people this it's made from water.The thought is it broke off a larger piece.

Did you find it in Area 51?

I found a clay bead site in SW Florida whereas the beads had perfect symmetry on the drill hole. Then I found crude pieces of clay with perfect holes and thought it was a weather worn bead. Then I found a clay pit near the bottom of the site along a dry, but damp creek bed. It had reed grass growing along side of it; as well as dead, washed out reed grass. The latter had chunks of sun-dry clay adhered to it. Once the reed decays, the clay remains with the perfect symmetry. Based on this discovery, I wrote a paper on how the prehistoric Indians made such perfect clay beads. They would pull out the reed grass; form the bead on the stock-reed; then put it in a fire to harden the clay and burn out the reed. Someday I will publish it.

This area was under water during the last ice age so anything could have happened.
