Was able to get it in a excavation site today in the city. Somebody was asking one time about improving the look of a bottle without tumbling, I rub baby oil on them and rub it off it lasts for 6 months maybe more. I'm thinking bocce balls but not sure.
No one seems interested in the balls there were more of them I'm assuming there to some kind of a game along the line of bocce ball. Maybe marble but crudely made.

Any idea what the balls are made of? I'm guessing about 1" diameter? Could be from a ball mill. With Bocce there is usually only one white ball (the Jack)

I think they might be marble, they're not true round and there were a lot more and 2". So grinding or some type of industrial use probably makes more sense.
