    Sorry about the no replies.I had phone drama and was out of commission for awhile.Still don't know much about this point.I don't believe it's bone because I don't believe it would last.It is not pink it's about three inches long.It was found about sixteen inches deep in a site that I have been digging for five years.The site has produced a variety of points knapped and ground.It has also yielded many gouges,plummets and other stone tools used in woodworking .The site also has a lot of pottery shards .This means along with the archaic presence there was a much later occupancy.It sits twenty yards off a stream in Maine.Thanks for your time....

    I am 100% sure it's bone, your second photo shows the inside part of the bone that was next to marrow. It is amazing that it is still that white and in such good shape, very good find.

    Thanks unclemac.That was interesting.Right now I'm not sure if it's bone or not.It almost seems like ivory or a type of soapstone.Kinda clinky sounding when it's tapped.I sent them some pics for their positions.

    After this is done lets see some of those other artifacts you have found. You say you found it 16 inches deep? Well here is a known fact for you as the age give or take a hundred yrs or so. For every inch of top soil add a hundred yrs and you should be rite around the age of your find if the soil hasnt been mixed in the past.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    rock... that's going to change alot from place to place depending on conditions..water,wind,erosion, sediment build up, soil make up and density,clay layer,the density and weight of the object, the amount of surface area presented to the soil.. ect..
    I've found 300 year old Spanish artifacts 3 or more feet below the surface.
