    What are the odds?

    I found the tip about three feet from the rest of the point. Didn't realize it was a match until later at home, I was stoked to say the least! The break looks pretty old too, has patina. It's kind of rough with a couple fire pops but I really like this personal find. 2nd piece is a red quartzite Savannah River hafted scraper or blunt tip. Not real sure what the third point is, last pic is some flake tools, have a good one.

    Nice !

    Best I ever managed was finding two out of three thirds of one.

    Field hunters love it when that happens, but diggers don't... Usually means they broke it.

    I've had it happen with a couple of pieces (never anything really nice), one time a buddy found the tip about 5 years before I found the base.

    Hey Tn, I'm nearly positive it's red quartzite. A hunting buddy of mine calls it Rhyolite, but I think he's wrong. The stuff is everywhere around here, it outcrops as cliffs along some of the roads and rivers. I had a decent weekend myself, looking foward to seeing your finds, thanks for the comments.


    appreciate the comments folks, nice match there pik , sweet ridge preform.

    Re: What are the odds?

    I would have said Argellite too. Easy way to tell : run water on it & clean with a toothbrush to get the dirt out of the little crannies. If only the dirt comes off, leaving the rest the way it was, it's quartzite. If you can see you're removing surface material along with the dirt, Argellite.
