I believe that is a Snook Kill point(knife). Did you also mean percussion flake? The striking platform, percussion bulb and curvature are all pretty clear in the photo and indicative of a percussion flake. That Levanna would have been sweet...
You find a lot of marbled rhoylite in your area.
That levanna would have been sick and I like the full one too.
That's timely in reference to charls post.
Good stuff! I wish our beaches were more like yours! We find points and large teeth in streams 30 miles inland but I have never found a point on the beach?
Your focus on Metal mostly or NA artifacts?
Last several years the colonial cellar hole metal detecting bug has gotten me good. Prior to that, NA artifact hunting was my vice of choice for many years. Every once in a while they merge. I detected a beautiful copper culture point once and do on occasion stumble upon a stray point on the surface while swinging the coil in a field. But the lure of the hunting for NA artifacts has not left me yet. Maybe when I retire in a few years I will have time to do both.
I hear you. I bought a megalodon tooth (Ebay) that was found in SC. It?s not the biggest, but it?s a killer.
I always thought that the large created lakes in SC would turn up some points. I know there?s a lot of quartz points down there. They?re easy to spot in that red-clay dirt that sticks to everything. I have visited family members living there. So many vast residential and commercial developments. I found a quartz Guilford Stemmed and a small Morrow Mountain point. Gave them to the kids though.
Regarding the beach. An area would have to have some natural protective feature (like an estuary or bay-inlet) for it to see prolonged NA use. Anything left unprotected against the open ocean is vulnerable to the violence of our historic storms.
