Best way to find one is when your not looking and that's how it was with this one. Curious on type and material.

Looks like Coastal Plains chert with field patina on it. Hard to tell on the point. Looks kinda like a Hardee with a break in the side. I`ve seen drills shaped similar.

Like Nic said, coastal plain chert and looks like it could be from Burke county with all those sea creatures in it.

Found in Wilkes county. The upward slant of the shoulders from the base was throwing me off. Kinda looked like a Elora in a way but I see a hardee resemblance. Only the third point from there that I've found that was not quartz so I was excited to find something different. Other two was a chert point and a rhiolite point. Thanks for opinions.

Rhyolite. Spelled wrong.

It's under 80-90 miles from Wilkes County to the prehistoric quarries in the Brier Creek Screven/Burke County area. Is the reddish/pink coloration due to "firing" or does it appear to be unfired?
