The Bowls Barrow Bluestone is better displayed than when I previously wrote about it - http://www.sarsen.org/2012/03/bowls-barrow-bluestone-in-salisbury.html (Salisbury Museum and Pastscape uses the Bowls rather than the Boles spelling so I have used it here.)
UPDATE: Pictures added 8/3/16
It looks like the base of a pillar that has been broken off and the base dug up. It looks like it came from Stonehenge and the mystery of how a large Bluestone boulder came to be on Salisbury Plain a thousand years before the Stones may be a red herring. The provenance of it coming from the Boles barrow and having being incoporated into it build is very weak.

Mike Parker Pearson lays out the story in his Stonehenge book:
