    Nice Adena

    I havenít had much time to hunt so Iím taking any chance I get this was a lunch break find. The tide was super high so I wasnít expecting anything but got lucky and found 2 nice ones.
    I found this smaller one first and I was surprised to even find it. Itís got some really nice flaking on it and the one side has a large flake / chunk missing I canít believe the point didnít break. Found looking thru about 6Ē of water

    I was heading back afer I found the small one and saw what looked like red clay in the water which normally I wouldnít even had checked this but edge caught me eye ... I couldnít believe it I think itís an Adena which I donít find many of them at all so a cool find it has some neat colors .... red and orange stripes Iím not sure if about the material

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Haha yeah Iím lucky enough to be driving around a lot for work and thereís a few spots I can hit. The place I found those has a lot of other folks that also hunt it so Iím fortunate to have found those ... iv pulled 4 nice ones from there so far this spring I believe itís due to more than usual beach / bank erosion over past few months.

    I believe it is jasper ... iv seen a few that have red and orange but usually jasper I find is much smoother .... who knows maybe that point has had a rough life

    That missing part is called a "pot lid". The point was probably laying under the dirt and someone came along and started a campfire over it. Rapid heating turned the moisture in the point to steam and it blew out. Gary

    Cool finds, both very interesting points !
    Does the smaller one have a bit of the cortex still remaining on one side of the base, as it appears in one photo? If so, I would suggest it may be a broad example of our local Lamoka family of points. The cavity or fire pop on the one side is huge and unusual. It may in fact be a fire pop, but the edges of the cavity look unusually smooth, which makes me suspect that the cobble they made that point from may have had that indentation in it already, and they intentionally worked around it when making the point. I suppose since you found it on the shoreline the cavity edges could have been worn smooth in the surf, but the other edges of the point don't appear to worn much.

    The large point is an unusual material and cool color combination. I would guess it is a grainy form of jasper, and a good material to make a heavy duty point from. Your on a roll, and I hope it continues. HH

    Thanks , the smaller one does have a bit of Cortex on the base , I never considered a fire pop thereís a small inclusion in the very center of the indent not sure if that helps with anything I took a pic of it. I believe your correct about the grainy jasper being the material of the bigger point looks like it would be tough to work with but holds up well. Have you been having any luck this spring ?
