    Too perfect to be natural ?

    I found this on a creek bank but Iím not sure what it is. There are a few spots that show maybe a tiny bit of flaking on the edges but the sides are pretty smooth, and one side is almost perfectly flat. The shape is very interesting to me, any thoughts?Too perfect to be natural ?-619d6555-a2af-4796-912a-37d4952635b0-jpgToo perfect to be natural ?-03e11c8a-2ff6-4e6d-93c6-a57ce35875d5-jpgToo perfect to be natural ?-f995d9ff-8cea-41dc-8798-f08b8c1db411-jpg

    A lot of stone naturally comes apart in those wedge shapes like that due to bedding planes during formation or uplift after formation. The flaking along the edges appears to be from tumbling in water and getting dinged on gravel.

    I agree, it looks like a piece of chert that has fractured into that shape naturally.
