And it has 2 flat edges - a thin one and wider one . Maybe for sharpening ? And it would make a good rolling pin .

I don't know ANYTHING about Native American artifacts but I have been to places where rocks like that can be found naturally, so I don't know, but it could be natural.

the flat sides are interesting to be sure but it doesn't show any wear on the ends...no pounding, no missing material etc. I too have found similar stones (no flat sides however) along the PNW coast that are NOT pestles...same rock type too. All the same, it would have come home with me also.
