I wonder if the tapered hole is a product of not using a 'boring stone,' but instead using sand and a stick to create the hole. As the hole bored deeper, the sand would remove both stone and wood, making the wooden tip smaller as progress was made, created a tapered, conical hole as seen here.

Just a thought...

Good call on the methodology.
Take it one step further and mount a hard stone burin on a stick and do the same thing.

Much like a fire drill.

There is even a little data on drilling times here

Pretty cool find. They probably got it through trade. Travelers looking to exchange jewelry for food would seem to make the most sense, assuming of course you can look past the 40,000 year anomaly.
