Large dolomite block with lighter spots, each marking a different pitch. Behind the block is a surface, cleared from all stones - possibly a dance floor..
The stone has been struck repeatedly in past to produce sounds. Therefore lighter spots are visible. Similar specimens can be found on the Aar Farm, Farm Immenhof, in the Omaruru district and near Kimberley, South Africa.
