    arrowhead or not arrowhead native artifact help

    Hey guys. I have here a couple known arrowheads, ( one complete and one abandoned halfway ) and this other artifact that i'm not too sure about. Its in between in size between the other two, and also made of limestone, but has perfectly smooth edges. Thanks for looking.

    I can't see much in pics. (I have a tablet and its hard to tell) I can't see any marks where the stones have been worked. There should be grooves on the edges where chips have been removed to make the edges and shape the stone. Just looking at the overall shape of the stone won't tell you much.

    I will post a couple more pictures tonight. The smooth one resembles, but not completely matches, an adema blunt head. Anyone have information on this type?

    Pictures as promised. Believe the first two to be piscataway points, one unfinished, as evidenced by the tooling on one side and incomplete tooling on the other. The smooth one I still have no clue about, or if it is even a native artifact.

    Looks to be quartz which is very hard to get a clear pic of. Try taking them out side and use the marco setting not the flash one. Put them on a non shinny surface. Then take your pic, you can use red or black just as long as it isnt shinny. The first one looks good from here but I would need a better pic to tell you if it is a point or scraper. The other 2 I cant guess as of yet. They look interesting though. Thanks, rock

    It is hard to tell for sure, but the smallest one looks like an arrowhead to me. Most of the ones I find up here are quartz, and that small one looks worked to me.

    Based on what I see in your photos I would vote for the two in the upper left hand corner as being worked.

    Thanks i'll have to bring them to work tomorrow to photo outside since that's the only time the sun's out. The bigger one seems to have been partially worked on one whole side and only one quarter on the other side (top left in the picture ). Will update with hopefully clearer pics tomorrow
