    Hello,
    Your very lucky to have found the other piece. I found half of a gorget four or five years ago but haven't been fortunate enough to locate the other piece. Congratulations!

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body, But rather to slide in sideways, Totally wore out shouting, Holy ****...What a ride!

    Jonzer - Had to come back and look again. just the broke end you found 8 years ago is a great find all by itself. Really an amazing find. You asked about getting it 'fixed'. I think it's a great, great find the way it is, I think it takes something away from it having it 'repaired'.

    Thanks man. The small end is the piece I showed you and Hippy at the La Salle show last year. I still can't believe it. Had trouble sleeping last night. We had some dozer work done in that area of the field. We removed a row of apple trees and pulling them up really disturbed the ground. It is pouring down rain today or I would be right back out there!!!

    I also had to come back and look at it, spectacular!

    If you had it restored, I think most people would assume more was missing. I'd glue it together, but leave it at that.

    I agree with the others. Just use some Elmers glue and stick it back together. It's a much better story that way. In fact dad and I found an axe in 3 pieces 6 years apart and more people ask about that than any other relic we have. We never did glue it back together because it's a fun story.

    I voted banner as well. That's as rare as they get especially made of hardstone. I have only known two other people who personally found them. The other hardstone one is probably the best one ever found in Illinois.

    I dont remember if the material is Gneiss or diorite. It looks like diorite from the picture, but I'm not sure.

    Great find again!

    Bird stones and Bar Amulets have always been such a mystery and the one you found is as rare as hens teeth any ways let alone finding the other piece to it years later.
    Lithic's casting labs even struggles with an exact use of this item.
