Carved by local jade from Tai Lake area, the object is a typical Liangzhu Culture awl shape septic whose usage is unknown. As with the typical jade awl, the front end has a 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 a 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. 本器上截前端有尖峰,下截末端製成手把形狀, 中間有一圓形小孔. 古玉跡象有差異風化, 鈣化等現象.
