  • Artifact or geofact? CT amateur inquiry

    Hey there people who know things! I came across this stone while clearing some topsoil at my home in Connecticut and wondering if it’s artifact or geofact? Aside from the serrated edge, I don’t see anything that screams possible Human working, but I’m just a lowly amateur rock hound.

    i was struck by how well it fits in the hand. There’s a notch on the “back” side in the perfect position for applying pressure to the edge (for a right-gander anyway. Any feedback appreciated

        Read our tutorial about posting pictures and then load some new photos. I removed the links you shared because they were password protected welcome to

          Thanks Hoss! Glad to be here. I’m having some tech difficulty uploading from my phone. Will probably be a couple days before I can get to a desktop. Can you remove the post and I’ll just repost when everything is working?

        Welcome. I agree with Hoss, the picture is not clear enough to determine anything.
        My name is Gary. I live in NE South Dakota
