Thats a LOT of work on a fairly small piece, you got good eyes to spot that item. The original owner must have had some special use for it.
Never know about one of a kind finds, Sometimes something out of the ordinary might be attributed to a
youngster, or maybe gran Pa just sitting around doodling ( before they invented whittling as a passtime )
hubby is a rock collector first....he carries a 30x magnifying glass with him....i was thinking it looked like maybe something that you would use as an engraver. But like I told him, it is certain that the site is a good place to keep looking.
this may be from as some say 'the work' area...so will let everyone know what else comes up.
hubby wants to see if he can find a point made from this. He has found a lot of agate in a location about 200 yds. from this.
He doesnt know whether to dig where he thinks the actual fire pit was or around it...so will post anything new as it comes up.
