Sorry, if he told you that is Bird stone he knows nothing about Indian artifacts. It is a rock formed my mother nature.

What reasons did he give you as to why he's calling it a birdstone?

I met the gentleman at an artifact show. Interestingly he had a display case full of copper arrowheads. It was his gut reaction when I showed him my find.

Could be just a case of pareidolia.
If I look at it long enough, it's kind of bird shaped looking.
Though it's totally natural, not altered by man.

The longer you're into the hobby, the more you'll learn. Keep your head up but eyes down!!!
