  • You can't judge a stone by it's cover!

    Looking at some of the broken open cores that I've found I was struck by the nice material inside as opposed to the weathered patina on the outside rind. The first 5 pictures are all from a small coastal site where the N/A's were gathering glacial cobbles and working them down. Most are felsite or rhyolites and one is a quartz cobble. The 6th pic is of a biface from Texas that still has some of the limestone cortex on a beautiful brown flint. The last pic is of a tiny Central Mass Lamoka pebble industry point showing the cortext on the base of the point.

        I didn't tan that deer hide myself, it was given to me. It does make for a great background.

          Yeah I have been rather surprised myself by just how nice some of the rocks look once the outer core is removed...and just how thin some outer cores are also...
          The chase is better than the catch...
