Have to wait and see what others say. Has the right shape but could be a couple of things like a test core from drilling, a battery core from an old battery or a pestle. I’m not positive so let’s see what others say. I would of definitely carried it home.

Possible nut cracker.. Hard to say if used

They did use sandstone for manos and metates in SWOK at times. Granite was preferred if you could get it. You look at the teeth in burials there and they would be worn down from grit that got into the food.
