Here is a piece of Jasper I found here in Colorado while I was out exploring with the guys. smile.gif

Attached Image

I know the indians used stuff like this for arrowheads and such,
but I thought It would be fun to knapp some into fall looking leaves......Was just a thought.
Its a great feeling being able to do and make things from nature...Dont you agree?

Here is a link on some history on knapping and some how too's.
Enjoy, I will.

Here is a cool one. A Quartz Crystal-Tipped Hand Drill. chin.gif
Whos going to see if this ancient tool really works? poke.gif
It looks like a fun experiment, just dont try to use Fluorite crystals like he did.

For the fun of it, I bought a fluorite crystal and made a drill out of that, but the fun ended when I found that this mineral was far too soft to be useful in general.

I like the BLM.
