This is a multi-purpose tool:
used to keep kids in line
crack the eggs when making an omlet
paper weight
hold down hide when tanning after scrapiing the gunk off of the hide so that it can be stretched and dried

It truly belongs on this site. It is between 150-200 million years old.  Justin

All right, I think I've got it...it's slightly stale pound cake with a brown sugar/cinnamin coating best served with coffee or milk! ;D

Not pipestone either, but that was a good guess.  I am surprised that some of the knappers haven't figured it out.  Justin

Ding Ding Ding....  I was actually looking for a specific name, but we are going to give it to Pat.  It is Navajo Sandstone, or some call it Jurassic Navajo Sandstone.  They are actually unsure if it is from the late Triassic or early Jurassic period. It is the same sandstone that makes up Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Zion National Park, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Dinosaur National Monument, Colorado National Monument, the sandstone around Lake Powell, and lots of others.  There are quite a few specimens around with dinosaur tracks in them, so I do believe they have been around a while.  It also comes in white, pink, grey, brown and multicolor.This particular piece has been used as a grinding stone for grinding horn down and as an abrader for knapping.  I have some bigger pieces that can be left stationary and rubbing your bow on for grinding/sanding.  They also work well as sharpeners for axes and hatchets.  Justin
