Hundred million degrees outside today managed to see this while passing out from the heat.
This one does show flaking - sorry for crappy pics. Not sure if it's a thing itself, or a just broken piece from a larger thing.
Not very exciting, I know...but that's how it is here. LOL
So I posted these before (the tan chirt one and the larger obsidian one)
Was curious about them because I found them in the same location and not another one in any other place I've been.
And then again in the same location a third one (also obsidian) ??
I try not to see things that...
I found these two pieces next to each other.
The scraper looking thing is quartz which is a bit rare here.
The other piece I about tossed aside until I looked closer. The edge is worked, it's a funky sort of semi-uniface knife. Not sure the material, as it's also not something I have seen here.
Found on the same day in the same area.
They looked worked but not extensively...Just thought it was curious how similar they are. Should have put something for size reference, they are a bit larger than a quarter.
A guy I met found this collection in a storage locker that was part of an estate auction.... I traded a shotgun for it.
Some pretty cool stuff here. And some strange looking things as well. Many are broken, unfortunately.
Rock, you had mentioned in another thread that it my come in handy to...
Recently getting my wife involved with the hunt. Second time out (first time was a bust) she found these...I think she's hooked!
I rough drew what I believed they would have been like when whole...so we could get a visual
Found this in an area where I have previously only found obsidian flakes. In fact I've never seen something of this material around here that I can remember.
Bummer that it's broken.
One day I'm gonna find something in one piece!
What you guys/gals think? Knife/scraper?
I sold a tool to an older gentleman today...we talked for a bit and then when I was leaving his house I saw a grindstone type rock by his front porch.
"Is that a grindstone?"
That led to more conversation and seemed I wasn't going to get back to work as soon as I thought as he invited me back...
