Hello, I was out digging this morning at my favorite 2nd Seminole war fort. I was digging where I’ve found many artifacts over the years and about a foot down this popped out. It’s possibly greenstone which leads me to think it maybe Native American. I’ve found a couple similar objects before. There a bunch of scored lines possibly for arrowhead sharpening or could it be an historic sharpener for soldiers knives. The fort had a creek nearby and there have been a number of points found by nearby residents over the years. You be the judge any any insight would be greatly appreciated. Happy Hunting!

Abrader for chipping arrowpoints. Before you take a series of flakes off the edge, you first have to dull it so the sharp edge don't collapse with the pressure of your tool. Sliding the preform along the abrader dulls the edge nicely. No doubt in my mind what it is.
