I managed to do some creek walking and found this. I understand that it is likely a stone and that nature has its ways of shaping them. However, the shape is very distinct, and I wanted a second opinion before I dismissed it as just a "cool looking rock." I understand the forum gets many of these posts, and I appreciate the help and patience.

The item is roughly an inch in length.

Very nice post, umbra. And I put my money on naturally shaped, although it does remind me of a fossilized tooth. Still natural I think. Thanks for posting.
I am glad it reminds you of a fossilized tooth as well. It is fascinating what time and water can do to a rock.

Thank you, I appreciate your encouragement. I do my best to communicate as politely as possible.
We'll break you of that. :laughing7:

I won't opine on this because sometimes photos aren't enough to form an opinion on the object(s). Whatever is, rock, fossil, sasquatch scat, etc. it's cool and I'd have picked it up for sure.
