one of a pair of cylindrical stones used in a mill for grinding grain; heavy weight; a burden (this job is a millstone around my neck)
a millstone is one of a pair of flat, round stones used for grinding grain. One millstone is stationary; the other rotates above it in a horizontal.plane. Grain is poured through a hole in the centre of the rotating millstone, flowing into shallow grooves, called channels, which radiate from the centre of the stationary millstone. The channels lead the grain onto the flat grinding section, called 'the land' and to the edge, where it emerges as flour. Sharpening a millstone consists of recarving worn channels and checking and smoothing 'the land'. The best millstones are made from French buhrstone, quarried near Paris. In the United States, where there is no buhrstone, quartz conglomerate, quartzite, sandstone or granite is substituted.....comprised with information from Encyclopedia Britannica.
