    46 pound Matate/ Indiana

    I was wondering what's it worth on the open market. I'll also post the killer nutting stone I found. Coolest/strangest one I have ever seen.

    Nice Rock!!

    I think I have the mano that fits that. As to price....all in what you can get I suppose....grinding stones are usually not high dollar.....ie 46 pounds of clovis points will be worth a lot more....lol. I find that digging one of those puppies up from a couple of feet deep can be a chore.

    I have had a Metate for sale for 2 yrs now at $75.00 at 40% off retail and it is a nice red stone material with a true dimple on it visible to the naked eye. It is still there and not even one offer on it. So the value I have mine at is way under retail but you will have to find somebody that wants one. A point will sell a lot faster.

    LOL,

    That big rock looks more like a hornets nest....odd for sure. The small nutstone is interesting...looks like it was just used...been cracking any nuts lately?? Nutstones are interesting artifacts...the first multi-tasking artifact as they were used for a multitude of different things depending on who you talk to and where they are found. Thanks for sharing.......and remember its not the object....its the shipping.
