I don't post most of my finds these days, they tend to be unremarkable, but this one I like. I would identify it as a Wahmuza, in the 1,000 year range give or take. These are found in the Columbia River drainage area, Washington/Oregon and up and down the coast. This was one of those, "last minute-lets pack it in," finds.

I like seeing them even if they are deemed unremarkable, my posts haven’t been the greatest either but it’s still cool to think a piece like yours hasn’t been seen for 1,000 years and a nice little look into styles and material from another part of the country. Also a good way to learn more about na technology.

Yes I agree... interesting to see the differences in size, style and materials.

no, it is a siliceous stone like a brown jasper.

interesting aside... I showed it to my local archeology connection and he said (not this piece but in general) when you see a point with a shoulder like that many times the actual point is the end that you think is the base. It looks like that because it has been resharpened over time again and again until it is discarded and blunt.
