Stone tool from the Penobscot

Reader T.T. writes:
A common occurrence on the Penobscot, a decade ago I did manage one preform or hand-axe possibility, on the banks below the walls.  When I turned it over I realized it had a odd weathering pattern.  It is not carved, but almost looks like a fossilized root pattern, of which I have found on felsite before.  I enclose some photos, thought you might appreciate, given the locality.  Kind of a poor man's Spirit Pond Map Stone.  T.

I have never seen such a huge chunk of that stuff. Gorgeous.

I found one like that. Only one side is worked but it's definitely felsite and about the same size.
