Western North Carolina at Treasure Valley: A few of items I've found are not native to my area so assume some trading went on with tribes or people from other areas.

Nice Western NC quartz! Looks like you picked those out of my collection lol. I find stones with the same smooth surface like the dark stone on the bottom right. It's just so much different than the other sides of the stone. Are the dark stones on the right very heavy and dense?

The bottom one is dense and heavy but the top one is thin, archaeologist told me the bottom one was an early artifact because I wasn't sure. Haven't shown top one to an archaeologist.

I've got several items from that black dense material ranging from a couple of inches to 12 or so inches and weighing 3 to 4 pounds. I also found an item in Missouri when I was working there a few years ago made from the same material. I haven't really been looking, but I haven't saw a source from where the stone comes from. Do you have any idea?
