    that was pretty much the case with the bentons. not a find i could likely ever repeat in a couple lifetimes. all stacked together.... the other side of them is covered in a black calcification/Caliche that isn't removable without some type of chemical treatment. i don't think that me taking it off would be appropriate. sometimes seems like an artifact/s find the person. the things seen on the path too, and found really blow me away as the collection grows. haven't been hunting near long as some of the grey beards on here. thank you for the kind words though. some of the shine is from handling, some from the flint/chert type or find location. i used to use mineral oil but gave that up a long time back when the bottle ran out. just rub them on the forehead or wash them off in mouth,

    I can only hope to gain a fraction of your knowledge and experience Grim.

    Three more of my nicer pieces: a hardstone plummet found in Cayuga County NY ; a uniface, curved, hornstone knife - Paleo period I am told, said to be from Ohio/Indiana; and a stemmed lance, maybe Paleo period, perhaps Sonora Flint, provenance unknown.

    FWIW, bifacial retouch usually comes along later in time.

    Hey Uni - could you explain 'retouch' for me? Does it mean the same as 're-sharpen'? And if so, what is it about the flaking on the edges of that 'uniface knife' that tells you it was retouched at some date after it was created; that the flaking pattern is not all original.

    Most appreciative of your expertise! Thanks!
