    Decent find at work today.

    I have the concrete contract on a new Arbyís coming to town. They had hauled in some black dirt and graded a green area a while back. I found this 3 inch piece on the surface this morning. Itís bijuo hills quartzite, That comes from about 150 miles west of here. The flaking while hard to see is parallel. I Wish it were all there.

    Where did that black dirt come from? Can't be to far away!

    Yowzers, that would've been a killer, whatever it may have been. Any guess on type?

    Yeah, it may be worth finding out where they hauled that load from.

    Nice save, might be some more golden items in that black dirt.

    Nice find, considering how hard that material is to flake it’s pretty well made.

    We don’t find many artifacts made of it in my region mainly because better materials were available. However when we do find an artifact made of it it’s generally in the form of a knife or a piece made into an expedient cutting tool.

    I love finding artifacts at work while getting paid. That's a good find. Could be more in that dirt.

    I used to to find a lot of pieces and new sites back when I installed satellite systems in the late 80's. We went to the middle of nowhere most times because they couldn't get cable. Picked up some nice pieces in those years.

    Cool Find!

    With the wide triangle cross-section and the parallel flaking , it looks like a possible Eden.
