Native American children's toys. I know as a kid I would sometimes play with them too - throw them at bottles on fence posts, toss into streams, hide them in snowballs in winter time to win at snowball fights (just kidding 🤣), etc.

Rock, but you’re on the track to learning I started out picking up a lot of rocks, eventually the differences will become more and more noticeable… sometimes you just have to think how would a person arrive at such a shape by striking off pieces of the stone and possibly abrading it.

Looks like just a rock of Limestone to me.... from a river or ocean.

Also a heads up, but the whole portable rock art thing is a scam for people to sell the uneducated plain old rocks for high prices. Native americans were not "dumb primitive people" as some people like to think. If they carved something it looked like something and was obvious, not just slightly suggestive. Look up the methods that the rocks were worked, like flint knapping, or pecking and grinding. You will start to notice how things that have been worked by man leave behind evidence of the tools and techniques used to make it.

Very helpful I appreciate the knowledge. And will keep working on it.

Hey you said it a little better than I did… some of the forms on rock art just aren’t possible to make with ancient techniques some would be difficult even now, like the little concavities that start out narrow then get wider behind then.

Agreed. Those old guys were very skilled, and didn't require the help of ancient aliens, either.

Reminds me of the picture showing different pyramids, around the world claiming evidence of aliens followed by the comment… or pyramids were just a really good way to stack rocks so they don’t fall down.
Ancient people were plenty smart and capable without an assist.
