Spoke To Dwaine Rogers.. Authenticator....Says He Has Never Heard of A
Looks like a sandstone abrading stone if found on a site around Tampa Bay....don't know your area.
"The Circle Roller style is unique among all discoidals in that it is the only style that is not symmetrical. One side is flat and the other side is domed. Excavations in north Georgia suggest that this discoidal style may have been used for an entirely different game than chunkey. Its find and distribution patterns suggest that it was a northern Georgia style, perhaps radiating from the Etowah Complex near present day Cartersville, Georgia. Circle Roller discoidals are made from some of the most attractive stone materials ever used for discoidals. They are encountered in beautiful amber quartz and other translucent materials. The Circle Roller style ranges in size from two to nearly four inches in diameter."
Could be Just Amazed. Usually a dicodal is pecked or polished and very round. They made them very well. There are many natural rocks that are already in that shape though.
Yes, yours is just a rock. This is a discoidal and TNMountains posted a picture of another one.
I think I have a pic of one found in my area. So far it is the only one ever reported as being found around here. They are very rare. The nice ones anyway. This one is made from marble and was found on a side of a local creek.
