Good small stone (probably basalt) scraper/adz from the Maori people- very hard, cannot be scratched with stainless steel. Polished on one side only with nice sharp edge. This should predate European contact since utilitarian objects like this would have been replaced by metal materials, so this is dated of 1300CE-1800CE. I bought this in a flea market in Auckland 1986. L: 5.5cm/2.2in and W: 2.5cm1in. Free shipping.

It is very unlikely that this device did anything to disinfect a room!
Visually-appealing graphics are featured on the cardbo...
