I found this circular stone type rock in my yard in mississippi. We have a small creek behind our house and we tend to find different rocks there.

Looks like it might be a water rounded & smoothed quartzite.

Ok cool. So naturally made? I was thinking possible agate but wasn't sure at all.

Is it  spherical, Nikki -- a ball?  If so, it could be man-made.

 

 

It is it's very smooth but it has a few little holes in it very tiny holes and it has layers to it but it doesn't really look man-made but I don't know

You didn't answer my question, Nikki -- is the object spherical?  I'm thinking of a ceramic ball from a ball mill.

Oh I'm sorry I thought it went through. Yes it is spherical.

Then it's probably a ceramic ball from a ball mill.  These wear out (as a set) and are chucked.  They are more often taken to be NA artifacts, rather than fossils.

So it was used from natives?

I think what Harry implies is that humans, being what they are, believe what they want to believe...

Here is a thread you should read.

These balls are modern.  They are used in a rotating drum to crush minerals/ore (for an example) before smelting.

Okay so I have a little update on this Stone. So like I said I found this Stone in my yard in Mississippi where I live but the lady who lived here before me is a friend of mine and she said that she got this Stone from like Michigan. So I'm still not sure what type of stone it is but it is not man-made and it is natural.
