Unique characteristics of product include small solid spots of dolomite that chip right through, occasional fossil inclusions, and more rarely a crystal pocket. Some have cortex on one side to be removed; all graded for cracks. Perfect for small Paleo and Early Archaic points as well as fine arrow points with parallel flaking. This material stains and antiques extremely well and makes excellent replicas.
Spalls require some percussion flaking and are glossy enough to pressure flake nicely. Perfect for use with Copper Bopper billets. With consistent grading, every 15 lb. box contains a reliably similar mix with approximately 100 pieces per box.
