Point I.D

Nice find! Never saw one exactly like that that I remember, but I guess I'd call it a Hardaway/Palmer variant.

I don’t flint Knapp, I took a short coarse many years ago. But I’d bet that white quartz would be tough to work. It breaks in segments or chunks like a piece of cork. I don’t know how you could make a shelf or platform to work With. I’ve never seen one found with the ears still on it.

Like anything else, you have to find solid, unweathered pieces. It is tough. You generally have to work it with wood percussion and antler pressure. You can make some decent points, though, if you get a good piece. It's much easier to work than metaquartzite.

The three in the top center of this frame, I made from local quartz and quartzite.

Nice work. Looks like a piece of our chocolate swirl Coastal Plains chert in the lower left.

Man thems some nice points. Ours looks kinda dirty with red zig zag veins in it. We have a lot of red dirt around this way.
