    That is an early paleo Indian tool called a graver, what do you think they made gravers for? Think about it. Portable rock art is not considered a tool. EVERY archeologist I’ve emailed these pictures to has told me that it is definitely worked stone and to get an archeologist out here because...

    This is a pretty neat zoomorphic stone, which by the way, was common especially among the first paleo indians. Probably used to carve images of other animals on their tools.

    What we do is after it rains, we go around and look for something barely sticking up from the dirt. There is alot of erosion in my back yard where it slopes down to the creek. that blade I found yesterday was just barely sticking up and I dug it up with my stick.

    No I didn’t find that last one, its in the Smithsonian. I was just Seeing if they would say it was natural stone. They got OSL date 15,000 BP on that one

    Here is another natural stone shaped by Mother Nature 😂

    Here is a core stone we found today also where they were cutting points off the end. Pretty neat piece.

    Check out this blade I found today when I was walking my dog in my back yard.

    I think it was definitely sharp enough to slice through a mammoth‘s flesh. Here is a better angle of blade.

    Here is the other side of that possible blade. It was in my creek, clustered together with other tools right where an ancient path crosses. It’s still sharp after being in the water for a long time.

    I’ll post one more picture of a painted quartz stone. If you can’t tell that it’s painted red then it’s no need for me to post anymore.

    I don’t need any help with the Clovis in my avatar. I am not trolling just trying to bounce ideas. Some of the points/ tools that I posted are painted quartz, I guess they used the grey clay from the creek and mixed it with ash or pigments. I’ll upload a few more pictures, one piece sure looks...

    I have a few more pics of what I believe is a type of tool that we found down by my creek. Maybe a chopper? I would like to get some feedback on it. Thanks again!

    My grandfather found the quartz Clovis in my avatar. I believe he said East Tennessee about 50 years ago and he left it to me after he passed away.
