    Hi_Bud...possibly a piece of yellow jasper or hornstone? Used as flint and viking type hones? The jasper i have at home is quite hard, lapped like hard Arkansas...though the pic ive posted i got off line.

    Looks a LOT like the stone that I couldn't afford in today's auction.

    Same color, same type of dark "imperfections".

    Here's a link:

    Vintage Sharpening Stone in Wooden Case. - eBay (item 370217867793 end time Jun-29-09 15:20:48 PDT)

    Am I wrong or is that a match?

    Sham, is that sedimentary layering on the side view of the stone or just dirt? There was a well known novaculite (Arkansas stones are novaculites) stone called the Hindostan stone which was found primarily or possibly even exclusively in the state of Indiana.

    Hindostan was used often as a whetstone even for razors and was also used to make gravestones.

    Here are some pictures that will probably not help all that much that I found on the net:

    Thick/thin edge banding on the side of a Hindostan stone

    Hindostan Gravestones

    If you scroll down on that same site, there are some links to history papers about the whetstone industry in Indiana in the early 1800's.

    I doubt yours is a Hindostan, but the color seemed similar. If yours isn't, then......SOMEONE go to Orange County, Indiana and get us some Hindostan whetstone!!

    The more i read, the less likely it seems that your hone is yellow jasper, but here is a link with info...Jasper is essentially related to Arkansas stones/Novaculite.
    The Jasper hone i have is quite small, multi-colored and i havent taken the time to completely lap it, due to its hardness...hence no razor tests on it yet. Sorry. :-(

    It is just dirt i didn't have time to clean sides yet. Chris check this stones edges see how it brakes down. looks like all stone in small peaces instead of all together. strange stone.
