    I think it is Jasper.Jasper can be yellow, tan, brown some is red but I think heat has caused that. So I am used to seeing eatern Jasper. Veracruz from PA and there is an outcrop in RI too. I think one of the members had some black jasper from RI. In my opinion Its not always lusterous. I have some artifacts made of jasper that almost looks like that. I cannot share a pic right now because I have been packing. We are going to move . Jasper is never transluscent. Well it sometimes it will have inclusions that are transparent but the jasper itself is never transparent. That is a nice blade . How big is it?

      Three inch blade (3.0) ; found in 1950's in southern Ontario; I have it typed as a Normanskill because of its broad side notches. I guess it could have 'traveled' to southern Ontario - not that far.

          Thanks for asking Creamer. It appears to be a type of Jasper but I don't know if it is from Pa. However we do have what is called Chocolate Jasper. Here is something very close to yours. Kim

            After a little research: this blade was found in 1950's at Little Sand Point, on Constance Bay, which is a part of the Ottawa River, just west of Ottawa.
