    Wow, that is some gnarly looking material. From the preview picture I would have thought it was native copper.
    Hong Kong, but from Indiana/Florida

        Interesting most of those look like flake points and contain some kind of cortex. Wonder if that material comes out in flat slabs like some sedimentary rock layers do

          I am amazed how the cortex is the same on one of mine. If I laid it with yours you'd think they came from the same source.

                    Thanks Bull. It amazes me! These and yours had to come from the same source don't you think.

                      Nice lot of them have cortex on both sides. I'm not shure where the quarry is possibly Delaware !
