    The borderline geofacts are always Kinda relative to me. I see loads of otherwise unmodified stones in context of a very rich site and I often think they were likely utilized in some manner. The weights are a good example of those that would be candidates for use but save for the context it's not easy to prove.

    Plummet anyone??

    Here are a couple of my best plummets...one is hematite...actually much nicer than the photo shows...the second is petrified wood...have posted it here before. Plummets here are associated with the Poverty Point culture and I have seen some true works of art in plummet form. The work that would go into polishing a solid Jasper plummet is remarkable.

    I'll try to post some pics of ours and compare.
    Karl, those caught my eye, as well.
    Hoping you come back with some pics, Trask.
    Would like to compare with these from the California coast.

    These all came from Eastern AR. Not really sure it they were all net weights.

    I see those "plummets " and I have a hard time believing someone would work so hard to make a net weight that beautiful. Too much work, when something as simple as the double notched stones on this thread will work equally well, with very little effort. In California, some old Napa natives said such finely made objects were charmstones with magical powers. That makes more sense to me, given the effort used to make such beautiful objects

    I really feel the same way about some of them. One that I posted a picture of that has a very narrow groove right at the end. I can't imagine all that work and not make a much more useful groove if it was to be used as a weight.
