    Very little difference between Flint,Chert and Jasper. They are all a type of microcrystalline Quartz, usually an opaque veriety. Although very similar you can read for hours about the technical differences. Its usually a regional thing or just the name given to a certain veriety by a geologist or local collectors. Your example does look like what most folk's would call Japer, it does turn red when heat treated but it also outcrops in red as well. The even coloring in your piece makes me think its naturally red, not heat treated.

    You may be on to something. I thought Hell Gap points were bigger but have been reading more about them and it seems to fit the bill at least if nothing else closer than anything else that I could find to match the style. Thanks!!!

    The flaking is wonderful!!!!
    I thought it could be some variant of Hell Gap too.
    But, for crying out loud, are ya gonna flip it over or not?
    Waiting patiently.

    Thanks for the information.I read a little about this but I am, by no means, an authority on the subject. This point came from south west Georgia and looking at some websites it appears to be possible that Jasper could show up here.
    My wife does all the driving, I just hold the steering wheel.

    I would say it more represents a Glendo point, that is both a true arrow point and could also be a late dart point.
