Oh hey this thing, I saw you post about it over on redit.
As a geology major I'd say the rock looks like it could be soapstone based on the texture, which would fit with the carvings, unless Its hard in which case that's probably not the case. It looks like whatever it is it has a fracture running down the front of it, possibly a break. Was it like that when you found it?
As for the symbols I haven't the foggiest although the Z thing you mentioned does look kind of familiar, can't but my finger on it though. I guess it could just be deja vu though, certainly wouldn't be the first time.
p.s. Well I guess I'm back to actually posting here again.

Some of these symbols remind me of the artwork from the Kadish gallery! 0_0;

I wonder if this is a sign of some kind?

D'NI LIVES!
Wow. I kind of feel like an idiot for no noticing that. I wonder if its just coincidental or if whoever made this thing was a Myst fan.

How do the images you've posted relate to one another? Is Pic 1 one side, Pic 2 the opposite side, and Pic 3.... ???

The regular notches along the edge reminds me of a ruler. Or some sort of alignment aid. Match up the lines with something that has similar markings. A calibration device? Just wild speculation at this point. Have you looked around your yard for any other stones? This might not be the only one.
