Ohio Pendant That Glitters In The Sunlight
This is an amazing artifact. The photos don’t show it but the banded red slate has tiny flakes of mica throughout which causes the piece to glitter in the light. It has a single hole that was drilled from one side making it probably from the Mound Builder Culture. It is very well made, symmetrical and highly polished. It also has awesome patina. There is an ancient nick on the side that appears to have been there from when it was made. The wear in the nick shows it was used long after the nick happened. This is an awesome piece. You will be amased by the glitter, If not you can always return it. I will try to get a better sunlight picture.
5 Thin Madisons
Here is an awesome group of thin well made Midison points. These were from the late Woodland and Mississippian Periods. These points were true arrowheads that wrer made after the bow was introduced in Indiana around 1200 years ago. All were legally recovered surface hunting in Tippecane County, Indiana farm fields in the 1960’s.
Beautiful Thin Celt
This is a beautiful celt. It is very well made from a highly polished hardstone with a lot of Ironstone or hematite in it. It is very heavy and appears almost rusty with patina. It has been ground to only 1/2″ thick. Extremely thin for its length. You can still see the pecking marks and the scraping marks left by the maker. This fine piece was purchased at a southern Indiana museum auction in the late 1960’s.
