        I am no pro, but it is consistent with all the flint ridge encounters I have been blessed with...absolutely my son’s favorite lithic material!

          I am amazed by how much flint I am finding and the size on 2 fields I just got permision to hunt. Not finding any artifacts but the one in picture. I assume all this flint was deposited by native american indians. Located zanesfield in logan county. Rich in native american history here. Wapatomica is just a few miles away.

            Not sure of lithic type here . . . It looks similar to some of the Flint Ridge I have seen ... Possibly the "Nethers" variety but it also resembles some of the Plum Run chert which can be mistaken for both Flint Ridge and 2 of the Upper Mercer variants . . . Plum Run can range from black to white (even sometimes on one piece) Very colorful material, quality ranges from a little bit grainy to very waxy ... as far as I know Plum Run was not heat treated to improve knappability ... It's main outcrop is in Stark County, Ohio ... The piece you posted is very similar to several artifacts shown in the Plum Run section of "Prehistoric Chert Types of the Midwest" by Tony DeRegnaucourt and Jeff Georgiady . . . There were trails leading to Indian Lake since the Paleo Period from both Plum Run and Flint Ridge quarry areas . . .
