    Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan Neolithic

    I have posted many of these earlier on, or on different forums, but since we have a cool new section on TreasureNet, I figured I'd add some pictures here.

    Most of these come from the Gobi Desert (Mongolia and Inner Mongolia in China), and a couple come from the beautiful country of Kazakhstan. Not really that close to Geradot's area. I have been collecting these for several years on business trips.

    I'll try to keep this thread updated with additional pictures.

    Those are nice and so is the material. Are these personal finds or did you do some trading?

    All of these pretty ones are high graded from local collections. I did make it out to one of the sites a couple of years back and found a few pieces, not unlike hunting on the edges of the Badlands in Eastern Montana. I dig out a picture of those and post them in this thread.

    Really finely crafted points!


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Here are some more made out of plate chalcedony. Very similar to the plate chalcedony found in Great Plains in the US, but thick enough that it can be worked better than the normal stuff we have here. Most of the hunting is done in blowouts that form in the dry/windy season.

    Here is a news article on one dust storm in the Gobi desert that made for pretty sunsets in much of the Western US. These windblown sediments also contribute to the loess soils in much of the Midwest US.

    They were expert knappers for sure. Good to see these again.

    One very neat type of point, and so far I have only seen them found in this type of material (not the pretty agates or chalcedony) is an ultra thin point that is a bit of a hybrid between flaked and polished artifacts. The points were knapped and then the high spots polished down to be about as thin as a dime.
