Indian Artifact?


Recommended Posts

I have had the following "what I believe is an artifact" for over 15 years. I found this outside Laredo, Tx - in an area where I have found greater than 100 arrowheads on a bluff.

It does not look like anything that could have been made naturally.

Let me know if you agree. Anyone seen anything like this?

Sorry, but it looks concretionary to me.

I cannot think of a use for it, except possibly ornamental.

But I do believe it is geologic in origin.

If a native american picked it up and wore it as a necklace, - who can tell?

Always suspected it was just a doodling exercise versus having any specific use.

Very odd; I see why you've kept it. Maybe you could post it for comments on the Arrowheadology forum LINK.

Evan, The cracks on the flat side I have seen in our local fossiliferous chert,which forms in nodules. Usually the rocks cleve along those lines. The red center must be more dense to have broken that way. John

I was thinking it was an early prototype for a baby pacifier....I'll have to check the patent applications.
