This beautiful lithic reproduction of a spear point with elegant parallel flaking was made by Virgil Tonn, a rancher from Georgetown, just north of Austin, Texas. The material is Brandon Flint from Norfolk County in the United Kingdom. Virgil achieves the beautiful flake patterns by grinding down a blank to a perfect configuration and then he flakes it. This grinding technique was perfected by the ancient Egyptians, but not by Native Americans. This is one of the nicest Tonn points ever made. Length = 60 mm ; Weight = 5.3 gm
