A curved indentation marks the external termination of the tapering 0.36 inch (0.9 cm) maximum inside diameter socket. The socket depth probes to 1 7/8 inches (4.6 cm) and there appears to be old dried material lining the walls of the socket.

The origin within Africa is uncertain, but features suggest the possibility of Central Africa as likely.
