    We have what is called sheet or plate chalcedony here in the Dakotas Larson. I will get some pics of how it looks up later. It doesn't resemble the lithics Greg posted pics of at all though.

    it looks like it would be harder to work than flint or agate, is this right??

    I don't know how hard it is to work and have never found a point made of chalcedony but have seen some beautiful ones in others collections.

    Here are some blades made of Chalcedony from your neck of the woods Larson. The material was found in thin layers in the Badlands I believe. A friend of mine has jars full of preformed chalcedony squares like the one I have pictured, that one is 1/4 inch thick..

    Crude looking pieces from the material, but it looks like it allowed a decent edge.

    Here's some Chalcedony pieces I have. I have a few more, but not any good pictures of them. In the last pic the Dovetail on the right is made from this material.
