Nutting Stone / Fire Starter
Nutting Stone / Fire Starter

This is one of the nicest examples I have seen. It appears that it was a multi purpose tool. It was pecked and polished into shape with much care. I believe it was used as a fire starter to hold the bow drill stick. It was probable used as a nutting stone and shows signs of use as a hammer stone. There is also the possibility it was used as a game stone due to its careful shaping. It’s a nice rock. (Now I feel that I should at least wash it).
