I am confident this is Georgetown flint, but Dwain did not put that on the COA. It is a thin and well flaked Castroville. I think I have said this before, but it may be worth repeating. Georgetown is a form of Edwards that is much purer and a truly superior material that is much easier to knap than the usual flint. It is usually grey to blue in color. Except for river cobles, all of the Georgetown came from one location during ancient times. The best is a 'steel' gray that is glassy, translucent, brittle, and rivals any natural siliceous stone in North America in flaking quality. Georgetown Flint comes from the Cretaceous Austin limestone/Chalk on the eastern edge of the Edwards plateau in the vicinity of Georgetown, Texas. Because of roads and dam construction, several additional quarries have been located in recent times. Ancient resharpening has taken away most of the barbs on this Castroville. The base is thinned to a nice tip with Rogers COA. I have the shipping.
