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?

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

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
