This reproduction of a Native American spear or atlatl dart point 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 material that Virgil used to construct this piece is Brazilian Agate. This lithic point is a corner notch design similar to points found in Utah and adjacent states. Length = 104 mm ; Weight = 16 gm
