    Nice Rowan. Always like the Quartz.
    That's one thing I miss about NC/VA finding Quartz points.

    Re: quartz point

    Both were clearly modified to be, and used as tools.

    With bi-polar reduction (split cobbles) it's hard to come up with a probable age. When cobble chert was what they had, cobble chert is what they used, and the reduction technique didn't change over time.

    I'd say that, in light of the high-angle edge modification on it, your bigger piece might have been a crude but adequate limace.
