This beautiful lithic reproduction of a spear point was made by Virgil Tonn, a rancher from Georgetown, just north of Austin, Texas. The material is North Texas Chert. 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. This is one of the nicest Tonn points that you will ever find for sale. Length = 115 mm ; Weight = 14.5 gm
