Hello fellow members, I recently took a trip down to Crystal Beach, in Bolivar peninsula, Texas. I was on the beach for about an hour. I kept on finding small sized fossilized fragments of bone (probably from the late Pleistocene Beaumont Clays). I found 4 small pieces this past Monday.

They are all just small fragments, probably not identifiable.

 

 

 

I was about to go back to the car after walking for about 2 miles on the beach, when I stumbled upon this.

It has a hole in it, and is oddly symmetrical. It looks like it’s made out of pottery. I really don’t know what else this could be, other than a Native American artifact. Let me know what y’all think this could be.

Where do you see symmetry on this piece? :headscratch:

It looks like a flat water tumbled beach stone.

Drawing this line through the middle shows the symmetry of the piece.It has a different density and texture than that of the stones at the beach. It does look worn down, I am thinking it may have been a piece of pottery. But I am no expert.

The stone is natural. Not an artifact.

I think stone too. Mother Nature can be a cruel trickster sometimes
