The front face is smooth. The bottom portion of the stone on the front face had been knapped and then smoothed to a thinner edge that is the scraper part of the stone. The back face is the same color pattern and is smoothed as well. A slight curvature of the stone also indicates it was a scraper. 00.30.101T (Scraper) image
28 00.30.101U Core Stone core--a flat oval with a rectangular protrusion on one side of the oval. The top face is split into two sections of color based on the shape of the stone. Where the oval and rectangle shapes of the stone meet, there is a dark red stripe in the stone on this front face. The rectangle-shaped section of the top face is unworked and brown, beige, red, and gray with small amounts of pitting. The oval-shaped section of the top face is worked, smooth, beige and pink veins, with gray specks. Knap marks on one side and smoothed on the other. The back face is worked and smooth. It is first brown and gray unworked stone at one edge, then moves to a dark red stripe, then gray stone, and then beige, gray, and red pattern for the majority of the stone.
