Hello,

I am not the owner or the one who found this and am posting for someone else. The item was found in a creek that has a large amount of petrified wood, fossils, and such of the like in Illinois. Any help identifying it would be appreciated, thank you. Also, the site looks amazing after the update, well done.

The item;
Tapers from one end to the other
Has a slight curvature
Is fairly uniform in texture
Is roughly 7 inches long
Appears to be have been broken off of something larger
