This is a RARE compact stone grinding basin likely used for crushing pigments for body painting, pottery decoration, art, etc.., or mixing medicines as it is too small to grind grain like the typical larger basins.  It is in perfect preservation, is complete and with original extreme use wear in the center from repeated grinding.  It is made from quartzite and shows wonderful wind erosion from extreme long-term exposure to the desert environment and sand.  This is the first small grinding basin we have offered that was used for tasks other than typical food production.  This specimen would compliment a collection of tools and weapons demonstrating all aspects of this life and culture.  Beware of fakes as many of these types of Saharan artifacts dominate the market now and are made so convincingly real that all but the most trained eye is fooled.  NO RESTORATION, NO REPAIR.
