THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
does anyone know of a culture that used limestone for points? I wouldn't have believed it until I saw it, but a friend bought one at the show as an oddity and it has all of us puzzled. Thanx for the help.
Sure have seen them, the ones I saw were from a Tonkawa site in Williamson County, made from hard crystaline Edwards Limestone. Some of it is hard enough that it flakes much like flint.
Well now Larry, I have some points from my Father's collection made from odd materials including one made from sandstone .
thanx for the come back, Mike and redman...when I see you in waxahatchie I will try to remember to bring it to show you, Mike.
well, we found an adena one made of limestone up here in good ol' Kentucky :) it was a very solid point...
