Hey guys, is this a fishing plummet? It was found at an Indian camp near a river. Seems very like one I found years ago. Only different is my first was a perfect ball on top. This one is perfect on one side, but not the other. I think it could be due to a poor stone choice that prevented that though.

Doesn't look like any Plummet I have ever seen and I have over 30. Not sure what it is but my gut says natural from what I can see in your pictures.

I have a lot of plummets made of stone and shell. They can be extremely funky and crude especially if used as a weight instead of ornamentation... but there isn't one that you would question if man-made. Man-Used is another thing.. There are also natural funky stones with knobs and holes found on sites that were used expediently...
I'd like to see the piece in the case. The one you hold looks natural funky..would like to see the bottom of it, is it broken off?
