Found in the soil in Penmaenmawr Conwy. Below an old stone-age settlement. Now a quarry overlooking Conwy Bay. Settlement known to make and export stone tools along the estuary. The stone is very smooth - has a hole which fits fingers a thumb - nice to handle but of extremely heavy stone. Where the settlement once stood is now a granite quarry.
