Very large stone ax. Made by polishing quartzite stone during weeks and weeks (perhaps months) what would have made it very (!) precious back in the prehistoric times. After all this time it is still in perfect condition.
Rare: since it has been found, there is still Sahara dust on the tool. Collectors item!
