  1. Thank you for the input from all.....as far as this being a part of a broken tool, just looking at it and its form, it is hard to imagine that as the source, but not knowing what it is, its possible. i laughed after the mention of the hammer treatment, it has been considered as well as considering prying it apart . it does appear to be soft enough to be easily scratched at least in certain areas.for me , if it is quite malleable, im limited still as to its makeup .

  3. I really appreciate the questions, my location is east central Iowa within a couple of miles of the Mississippi River.

  4. This piece was found in a load of locally quarried limestone. It weighs 195 grams. A basic water displacement test gives approximately 11.5 g per cubic centimeter. It exhibits clear magnetic and strong paramagnetic qualities. It also has stony material in/on it. Any input would be appreciated.
