    I believe the xenolithic portion of the micaceous metagabbro was chiseled out. M80, I think you got it.

    Thanks for the input, Guys! After vetting all the responses and asking some "old timers" from our area, it appears to be a foundation stone for a post or beam. I tried it out as a shaving bowl but I couldn't get as good a lather as I can from my Dirty Bird! (just kidding!)

    It looks like a firestarter, with a hole drilled through.

    Let me explain. Stick on top of rock with kindle, dry grass surrounding it. years later,cut a hole in rock to put kindle in it and stick to start it......slowly over time smaller hole was drilled in or through it.

    I have seen some fire starters like that with 5-6 holes drilled through it.


    Just my 2 cents!!

    A Cro-Magnon bong?
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    Looks like something to melt some type of metal. Place fire on top and metal inside and as it melts it drains into a receptacle or mold. Hole on side for air flow?
