Padoof’s ancient tool?

By johnboy - 7 March 2013 5

ancient tool

This in from Sandra, any bone dusters who can help?

Walking on the ‘Bogey Hole’ beach at Mollymook, 6 am Tuesday, I found this amazing rock which had washed up during high tide. I’m convinced it’s an ancient artefact, and can just imagine it was a tool shaped from stone thousands of years ago…obviously the pointy end has worn down after thousands of years of being in the surf πŸ™‚

Where does one take these to get checked out (without being ridiculed of course!) my family’s having a bit of a laugh at my expense I’m afraid. I don’t care, I think it’s pretty cool with its ergonomic design.

What’s Your opinion?

That’s a giant mermaid’s pick, for playing the seaweed guitar.

Now, who’ll look like a tool if it really is a tool? Perhaps someone at ANU could help you. Anthropology?

Looks like the Belconnen Owl to me.

Hahahahah, this reminds me of the time someone tried to sell an air guitar on ebay

Looks natural to me.

A stone axe as such wouldn’t have chips in the edge as they would have been ground smooth over many years.

Sorry πŸ™‚

Although the area is a fossil hunters wet dream, I would say that you have a nice piece of Karst limestone that has diisolved\broken away over time from water movements.
