    Point Or Vivid Amagination? ID Help Please

    Hey all, found this walking along the Mississippi. Not sure if it might be a point or a clever work of nature. I don't think it's a point because I believe it is sandstone, at least judging by the little piece I accidentally broke off, but thought maybe because of the beveled edges on sides and on back end of the point.
    Thanks for your help!!

    if you easily broke off a piece then I would say no, and if it is truly sandstone, then double no. but if i found that shape in the water (smoothed over time) and it was the right stone, i would have said yes.

    I believe you have a bona fide geo fact , looks like a texted book river worn piece of sandstone
    that just so happens to be shaped like an arrowhead, I know I've picked up my share of pieces that
    look very similar to yours thinking I had something. Keep looking though if your on the water
    there a good chance there was occupation and its only a matter of time.

    Pretty much another rock. Sedimentary rock, like sandstone, works good for grinders, abraders, and smoothers, but not for cutting utensils. You have a good eye though so keep looking!
    Just like Texas in 1880.
