Beautiful example of the type..dont ever let it get mixed up with common flint points.
The good close ups of both sides can lead to some speculation about the original knapper's thoughts.. It must have been fairly thin to begin with...that white color is not bark but just the exterior weathering evident on both sides then the resultant mineralisation color change going into the interior.
The flaking is not as smooth as chert, possibly the nature of the original wood grain.
I'm thinking the knapper was happy to get it as far as we see it without trying to get it any thinner.
As "usual" on an interesting subject I went to Google...Specifically PW by individual States. Seems EVERY State makes some note of an area where to find PW. I only tried about 5 States including Oregon but some articles made referent to large areas like the " North East or Mid west " etc.
Texas is well represented and the contributions are very varied depending on who is writing the reference,,,one calls his area a "petrified forest"'
And how about a Texas real Estate company with a wooden house for sale in Tyler !
This picture page does not specify construction material but other pages do, it's all local petrified wood.
