This groundstone tool was shaped by grinding away unwanted material. It may have been used to grind food or pigment. However, the artifact is nearly too large to be a mano, the upper hand-held millstone for grinding food or pigment. So, too, is it questionable as the lower millstone used for grinding, called a metate, because of its small size.
