    I think part of my problem is the white quartz they used stands out so much my eye's have probably gotten a bit lazy!

    If it's any consolation, I feel your pain. Just my opinion, but I think you have to get below the Fall Line, or the Slate Belt, in SC to find colorful chert finds. Know some people who hunt Allendale, Barnwell, Walterboro, over towards Edisto and barrier islands and they have killer finds. River hunting in SC also can produce nice finds. I've read a book that states after the Archiac period, the NA migrated to coastal areas in SC following the waterways. But keep your eyes open because I have found a few chert finds and you really have to train your eyes not to always look for white (quartz) on the ground. I think the one exception to the Upstate vs. Low Country is York County. I've seen some killers from York County. Be grateful for those small quartz finds but I understand because in have flint envy😄

    Be glad not one of the guys, coz I have (lovingly) blasted them a time or two! I was rock collector who realized, way after found it, that my favorite milk white quartz kept in jewelry box was Bonham point, very, very, very old. I only find quartz (99%), and believe me, your lumpy dumpy pieces are beautiful!!

    To answer your question, PERSONALLY, I only find big points in creeks. My Mentor tells of "the good ole days" when fields were deep plowed and left to weather all winter. Back then he found those big G10s laying in the fields.

    I never saw those days. By the time I got into it, the plows were parked in the scrap yard, and best we can hope for is a good disking. Which...breaks the points to pieces. Occasionally, if the backwater hits a sandy spot just right, a killer will wash out. But 90% of my really nice posts are creek finds.

    Hope that helps
