The mysterious stone, which comes from Lake Winniper Soki in New Hamish, is said to be a "remote artifact" (OOPArt). The age, use and origin of the stone are unknown.

The stone is about 100 mm long and 64 mm thick, dark egg-shaped and engraved with a variety of symbols.

One side of the stone was carved with corn ears and several other characters. The other side is more abstract, with inverted arrows, moon shapes, dots and spirals.

The researchers drilled stones from top to bottom and drilled bits of different sizes at both ends (3.2 millimeters at the top and 9.5 millimeters at the bottom).

It was reported that in 1872, while workers were digging a hole as a fence post, the stone was found in Meredith, New Hambush. Senecalad (Seneca Ladd), a Meredith businessman, hired the workers.

In 1892, after Rudd died, the stone was passed on to his daughter, Francis Raiko from China and Hong Kong. In 1927, she donated the stone to the New Humbsher Historical Society.

The stone is currently on display at the New Humbsher Museum of History.

It was reported at the time that the stone was "commemorating a treaty between the two tribes". Another writer later thought it was a thunderstone. Because of the limited knowledge of Lei Shi at the time, the letter said that Lei Shi "always looks processed or handworked: they often come from the depths of the ground, embedded in clay blocks, and even surrounded by solid rocks or corals." the letter said that Lei Shi "always appears to have been processed or handworked: they often come from the depths of the ground, embedded in clay blocks, and even surrounded by solid rocks or corals."

In 1994, the holes in the stone were analyzed. Richard Boisvert, a national archaeologist, later suggested that the holes looked like power tools from the 19th or 20th century:

"I've seen a lot of drilling techniques in stones, and you think of prehistoric North America. There is a certain degree of inhomogeneity. This hole is very regular. What we don't see is a change that is consistent with what happened hundreds of years ago. "

The scratches in the lower hole indicate that it was placed on a metal shaft and removed multiple times. It is considered that the stone belongs to quartz rock.
