Hi!!

Sorry, couldn't fit the whole name of the park in there. It's "Monmouth Battlefield State Park, where I found the artifact(which was promptly returned to the proper authorities!). I am so proud! Here are two enlarged pictures back and front:

When I took this artifact to the park historian, he said it was so old he wasn't quite sure what it was made of (it wasn't his expertise). He said maybe Ardulite (sp?) I could find basically no information on the subject... anyone else have a guess???? I'm just an amateur...

AND I found this. Picture below:

Could it be an artifact? Or is it some strangely shaped rock that I should just throw back where it came from. Tell me what you think it is and I'll tell you where I got it. I have plenty more "objects" where that one came from, mostly stone.
Would love to hear someone else's take on my "artifacts"!!!! Hope to hear from someone soon!

pardon for the extra huge image, but I tried to resize it several times and it just won't take... at least you get some extra detail....
