Description: This lovely mill grinding stone has an elegant oval raised contour for the hand. It was used for maize or other gain on a flat stone surface like a "metate". I've never offered it for sale since its cultural attribution is still unknown. In good condition with a tiny chip on the front edge and a hairline separation.
