    Thought of a jasper point. Found a jasper point.

    As I was searching in Maryland, I thought about finding a nice jasper point. I was just keeping my mind fresh with visuals of color and worked edges, etc... about 30 seconds in to that thought, I stumbled upon this guy.

    I started the trip off with the quartz point. Never found one before, so this trip was well worth the effort.

    I also found this tiny flake. Upon further inspection, I noticed it had serrations. Perhaps Iím wrong, but if anyone else sees it, can you tell me if it is just a flake or if it could be a micro-tool?

    I spent 10.5 hours hunting yesterday, with only a half hour break for lunch. It definitely Paid off. I donít find things quite often, so this was thrilling for me.

    Thanks,

    BrettCo

    Nice frame point its probably stained the brown from the creek. Could of been a whole different color when it was 1st made.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    Not really without damaging it for a long time shine. Short would be mineral oil but it will wear off in a week or so. Anything else will damage it or change the color of it. Dont ever put cooking oil on it.

    Very cool point, congrats.

    They certainly didn't use enough jasper in my opinion, it make beautiful relics.
