gravel and coral
« on: December 29, 2018, 07:34:50 am »
raw gravel and cooked coral Florida points.
I think they are Florida points anyway. I loaned out my overstreet book and can't thumb through it to see what I actually made.
The coral point was made a while back at the Niblets Bluff knap in and I came home with three more pieces of coral which I haven't worked yet.
I heard of a knap in in Florida in February and I sure would like to go there and expose myself to more coral.
I love to work that stuff.

Very well done. I can see your fingers through the coral. Love to work that coral too. Hope to pick some more up in Cartersville GA this April.

thanks
I looked at images of it on line and Dan Thueses points at the knap in and it can be from plain white to extraordinarily colorfull.
I like that along with the fact that it knapped very well too.

Here's a couple more I made tonight from heated gravel slabs. These are the last two slabs from that piece of gravel which where all over cooked a bit for my liking.

Again just beautiful 1442. I got a piece of something from the free chert pile at Marshall the first year I was there. Well actually my cousin got it and gave it to me. I think it was coral. It had been worked be someone else and was steps almost all the way around. I really didn't think I'd be able to get anything from it. It was quite small already. I couldn't believe how nice it worked. I'll see if I can find a picture of it.

Thanks
It's good to know the name and dates of the knap in.
Here's some cool stuff I got to see and hold that came from that area.
mammoth tooth, mastodon jaw and extra tooth and a giant ground sloth claw bone, plus a section of a tusk.
