This object is a lithic and is 7 ⅓ inches long. The Catalogue Card describes the material as serpentine, but it is unconfirmed. Both the ANSP and loan numbers are visible. The lithic is smooth. The numbered side is beige and relatively flat but pecked and weathered. The other side is primarily beige with yellow undertones. It is rounded and pecked, and less weathered. Soil has collected on both sides’ divots.
