Irregular stone slab found in September 1958 by Simonett in the corner of an old farmhouse in the hamlet Raschlinas near Präz in the Posterior Rhine valley. The slab was used as a guard stone, but had until a few years prior served as the base for a wooden pillar in a part of the building dating from the 16th century. The greenish stone is Andeer gneiss (Simonett 1959: 2 f.) from somewhat farther south in the valley. The slab weighs over 400 kg; its shape appears to be natural (Simonett 1959: 3). In the absence of a context, no dating can be given.
The slab is currently not on exhibition, but stored in the museum's depot.
