This lithic reproduction of an Agate Basin (Random to parallel flaking) Point from the Paleolithic or Archaic period 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. Length = 129 mm ; Weight = 26 gm
