I was on a walk in my woods today and found a mysterious rock with a hole in it. It is concaved and looks like it has tooling marks. Never found something like this. Doesn't seem like a natural formation. New to the forum, hey!

Not sure if it is anything other than natural. I will leave that to the experts on the site but welcome to the forum from North Carolina.

Its a drip rock, I found one once and my brother in law who is in to fossils told me what it id. Over thousands of years a consistent water has dripped on that spot to create the hole.

I put it on my night stand lol Natural or artifact, I love things that predates me!
Well then....you should love the people here!!! :tongue3:

I don't know but was wondering. Could it be a stone that was used for starting fires? The old bow and arrow friction thing?
Welcome!

I doubt that it was used for bow drill fire making. Way too big to hold comfortably and hole would be more tapered on the edges. I've used everything from acorn caps to a nicely carved piece of catlinite for my bow drill kit and have made thousands of fires with a bow drill

I really have no clue. But I was thinking it was a worn out bow drill base. Maybe tossed aside because it was too big of a hole? :dontknow:

Thanks for the info.
