A stone I'm 'mostly sure' is Liminite, not Hemitite, an iron bearing sedimentary stone frequently used for Grooved Axes, occasionally for a Gorget due to it's density--still lighter and softer than hemitite, though. This piece is from a southwest Indiana collection, found either on a village site or a riverbank, so there isn't history with it. IS, it a small Birdstone, or is it a natural stone that was so reminiscent of a bird that someone wore the piece as a pendant? The surface is so weathered that it's impossible to say if the 'eye hole' is natural or man-made. The surface is really, really smooth, but again, is that from someone polishing the piece, or is it simply river gravel polish--no answers on my part. The piece makes a great conversation piece at artifact shows, though--Roy A.
