Carved by local jade from Tai Lake area, the object is a typical Liangzhu Culture awl shape septic whose usage is unknown. As the typical jade awl,  the front end has shape point, the back end may be served as the handle with a hole at the near end. The main motif is a Liangzhu style low relief carving of god’s face. 良渚文化錐形器. 本器在有些文獻稱為雷公針, 似乎意味作為祭祀雷神的法器, 其中的神面淺浮雕便可以解釋為雷神. 本器前端有尖峰, 後端製成手把形狀, 中間有一圓形小孔. 全器有鈣化跡象.
