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. 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. The edges on both sides have a very delicate and sharp serratied configuration, so this could also be used as a lithic knife. Length = 92 mm ; Weight = 8.3 gm
