THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
This posting brought forward 7-27-13 in reference to flint colorations.
Thanks for the nice pics, just curious if that's the family that discovered the encampment on their own homestead?
Really like that pea**** obsidian, just wondering if it's the same thing as rainbow obsidian? Saw a show on Travelchannel where the native Americans still make points out of it for sale. Watched one of them knap one out on the show.
woooowwwwww!!!!!! awsome repros!
rg, the knapping demonstrators were setup on the Mckee site open house grounds. The folks in the pic with me are collector / dealers for a large number of
independant professional knappers.
Te, This variety of obsidion was from Utah. I wouldnt know scientifically how or what areas
they define the different types. This piece is pretty subtle depending on the light source. Maybe rainbow could be seen from across the room.
Here's a repro story:::
Dan T walked with me along the display tables pointing out some of the materials, siliconised sandstone, a frame from Madagascar. on & on.
Someday I might find an arrowhead out of quartz with the natural gold veins included. For years I had my thoughts fixed on the Florida fossilised
coral points as being really unique. . .BUT. . . .
Dan showed me a real one of a kind I may get back to him on if my stimulous money check comes through soon. . . .
A gorgeous yellow multi colored 3 1/2 inch point made out of COPROLITE.
[ Does everybody know what coprolite is ? ]
Wow cool points, I've got a repro turkeytail just like the one at the top. Also coprolite, isn't that fossilized dinosaur crap?
I think that's what I heard Tucker.
Yep, heard of throwing it and slinging it, but this is a new way to kill a buffalo. Or an enemy Indian. Can you hear the stories now back at camp?
Nice exotic materials SH. What color is the pea**** obsidian with light showing through it?
Sorry about that eric!
Pea****! Bahah! Can't even say pea**** 'round here!
The Bad Word program got ya!
Sorry again! It catches some strange stuff.
I have a new re-pros .. I will post um !
wow i love the palm wood somebody please teach me how to knapp i already know how to nap
Nother flint show, nother repro for the collection..
Still in frame, pink collored Ohio Flint Ridge material fashioned into a GRAHAM CAVE was my choice.
Here's Hershale of Witchita Trading Co. Note all the repros that can be seen on his tables.
Close ups of all 3 repos I got this trip can be seen under " SPRINGTIME IN TEXAS TOPIC "
The biggest Texas flint show of the year means special $$ offerings....
I met up with Dan Theus again and this time had the change to shop the discount box...I got 5 new additions.
The horizontal one is as clear as Amber.
The two to the right of the penny is by Jarrod....the white one is TX petrified palm wood...
One of Dan's acomplishments is a successful knapping copy of a Guatamalan cerimonial piece featured in Nat. Geo.
