This sub-triangular granite boulder (1.2m long x 0.90m wide x 0.55m high) has frequent mica inclusions and occasional large quartz inclusions. One side of the stone shows signs of quarrying.

The Art:

There is a scatter of c.40 closely spaced cupmarks (3-5cm diameter, 1-2cm deep) on the upper surface of the stone, some of which seem to form a linear pattern.
