A southwest corner of Indiana Paleo Clovis from the estate sale of a local doctor, 1" by 3/4" by 3/16". The Clovis was anciently snapped and then blunted to fashion a hafted scraper. This grade of hornstone is odd in that it has hinge fractures basically all over the piece. To explain that in more detail, with Clovis artifacts you expect that due to age and freeze-thaw action ALL hinge fractures would have long since popped free Why not here, I can't come up with a reason, but the patination of the hornstone is evident, it's real. there is both basal and lateral grinding, heavier on the lateral edges, in fact. Why there is an additional flute coming from the tip--only explanation I have is that there was one strong impact fracture channel flake extending down from the tip. Could the 'blunting' have been done by a later culture--yes, but it has had time to patinate to the same extent as the body of the piece. The doctor who owned the piece was known for his Paleo collection, and he had this small point in the center of one of his frames--so BOTH of us are convinced it's real. If you have questions please click the "Ask seller a question", I'll answer as best I can. Shipping is $4.00, checks or M.O.s welcomed--Roy A.
