This absolutely gorgeous lithic reproduction of a corner notched lithic point with elegant parallel flaking was made by Virgil Tonn, a rancher from Georgetown, just north of Austin, Texas. The material is Australian Opal which flashes purple when held in the sunlight. It is impossible to capture this effect with a camera. 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. Length = 65 mm ; Weight = 5.6 gm
