        Can you post a closer shot of the base with both notches, and a shot of the other side with the edges? That really looks like red slate or shale, or Munsungan chert, which outcrops in Maine, and is often used on points from up that way. I'm not sure if red basalt occurs in Maine. Maybe, IDK for sure.

          It also looks like a gray chert or rhyolite point to the left of the round rock!

          This is why I like situ pics....I can relate to someone not seeing the whole picture in situ in excitement of a find..

            Excellent find! I think it's safe to call it a Dovetail.

                    That’s a great find . They are finding basalt on the moon now from that Chinese event up there . Had to throw that in CDM
                    I love walking and seeing a color like that pop out .
