"Choris End Blade" Discovered in a sand blow out on an arctic beach following a bear excavation in search for ground squirrels. This projectile blade is made of beautiful blue-green chert with lateral flaking with a polished erosion from traveling in the sand for thousands of years, in and out of the ocean between storms until it was exposed by a grizzly bear. This is just one story for the history that this artifact has shared. Chert and such materials last well into one geological time period and into another, ice ages as all ages when unrecorded history to the times where artifacts such as this have always been in existance from the earliest cultures of mankind...

  1. You are an excellent photographer! What is that woven material used as the background-- something old?
