Roughly 10,500 years old, the projectile point was found in Cambridge, Ontario. It is made from Onondaga chert which comes in quite a range of colors (see a different Onondaga chert point here).

    Love the texture and 3D effect! I can just picture someone chiselling away at it…

    It looks nearly photographic. How beautiful.
