This hematite artifact was found in Greenwood County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1984. The broken artifact still shows four grooved lines, though what its original function was is unknown. Hematite in this form is a soft fine grained material that enables it to be more easily carved or incised.

Date: 1350 CE-1850
