      Super cool item that makes me wonder. (I just watched a show on the Grand Canyon legend of possibly Egyptians being in a cave there). It looks like a grinding stone with the knurled edge for a better grip when wet.

      Looks like a wheel for a stone age tonka. Very interesting piece.

      Here you go. Some where as small as 4.5" http://lithiccastinglab.com/gallery-pages/2011novemberpalettespage1.htm
