I know it’s fairly flat but if you find a observation point, the arrow points should be there.. Also there should be points in the pottery sherds you were walking in......JJ

        Great advice. Sincerely appreciated. I find of lot of things that look like someone was trying to make an arrowhead, or maybe they're broken? Just posted some definite artifacts and some 'contenders' in 'Lithic'.

      I do believe it is.
      Not the same stuff we find around here.
      Your specimen weathered well.
      The texture is caused by exposure and demineralization.
      Given time it would have dissolved away.
      It is a "Rock" when it's on the ground.
      It is a "Specimen" when picked up and taken home.
