Re: Stone Tool?

The side that my fingers are on and the side that is in the palm of my hand is smooth...I presume from handling...these pictures dont do it justice...Used for digging/grinding? Anyone ever found any like this?

Re: Stone Tool?

I doubt that is a stone tool, just a rock worn into that configuration.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I reckon it's a stone tool if he wants it to be.

Re: Stone Tool?

You never know what you're going to find, but a stone tool usually is chipped or damaged where the striking edge is located..This is prominent on axes and celts....Most tools also display "pecking", a process where the tool maker formed a certain tool from rock, using a piece of antler or another harder rock..Pecking will appear as a rash of little pin pricks, similar to using an ice-pick on something to chip away material...In this case I'm inclined to believe that this may simply be a rock, but put it on Ebay as a tool, and someone will buy it!

Looks like a petrified severed ear to me

American by birth, union by force.
Would like to see that bumper sticker.
