Fragment probably from the blade end of a polished stone axehead of Neolithic date (c. 4000 - 2350 BC). The fragment appears to be the corner of the blade end of the axehead, with a diagonal break at the top of the fragment.

Enough can be made out to infer that the overall section of the object would have been oval. The stone is rough with quartz inclusions.
