Indian artifact or rock?

I found this today in a load of washed rock. I just about threw it in the pile, but I noticed how round it was, and how well it fit my hand. The bottom is flat, and the top has a pretty uniform radius. Any experts (or non-experts, for that matter) have an opinion?

If it is, it's likely used for pounding something, or grinding, as with flour. My aunt finds stuff like that around her place all the time.

As a renowned petrologist, which is a branch of Geology dedicated to studying rocks, I have examined your pictures with great interest.

And I can state unequivocally with no fear of contradiction, that is most definitely........................................ .

I am certainly no expert although I do tend to drive over alot of rocks.

Around here that type of stone is fairly common, referred to usually as river rock.

I have dozens in my drive way that if you look at em from straight above look like they could be perfectly round.

They are all nicely rounded on top and flat on the bottom

Thanks for all of the input. I guess it wouldn't surprise me if it was just a rock, but around here that's a little unusual to be so flat on the bottom. Maybe I'll change my plans about selling it on EBay for millions.
