A heavy, heavy chunk of stone, this Early Archaic Culture Axe which was found along the White River drainage in southwest Indiana. My scale recorded the weight as 9.5 pounds--the stone is a sedimentary material, liminite, a combination of silt and iron deposits. This type stone exfoliates, (flakes off), but has lost almost all it's 'shell' of rusty colored low grade iron ore. Length is right at 8" by 6&3/16", thickness is (where my caliper will reach, 2&5/8". On the flattened face the blade (bit) was either salvaged or there was never enough stone to fully form and polish the bit on that side--it IS ground smooth on that rougher surface, though. What was this monster of an axe used for--good question ! The sheer force exerted on a human elbow from swinging this axhead mounted on the end of a handle would be incredible, soo... you'd think the purpose was more ceremonial. However it was used, it's lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is included in the price, Priority Mail package due to the weight. Checks or M.O.s are welcomed, day-after-receipt shipping--Roy A.
