"The Morella is a specialised type of polishing stone known chiefly from the Darling Downs of Queensland, but also from the coast of NSW. It is a small pebble from 1-2 inches long, split from end to end across the section. This cleavage surface was used for polishing and on the specimens known had a strikingly flat, smooth face"
