So these rains hav turned up stuff everywhere.
Found this yesterday.
Have no clue on ID. It's a nice white quartzite. Possible Knife.
I grabbed in in situ shot. Brilliant against background.

Thanks for peek.

Like seeing quartzite used as a lithic. It?s not as common as our white quartz and rhyolite lithics. That one looks either made crudely, or a little banged up. It?s a big hafted knife for certain.
Nice surface find.

Yeah the tip is snapped off right at the point.
This quartzite when exposed to the conditions I presume it was exposed to; years under the ground, surface upons storms, lapping waves, ect seems to create a flaky lithic. I can see points on the side exposed to ground where seem very flaky and super fragile.

Anyway,
Yes a bit water eroded and some crudeness in their too.
