We launched our new "Sister Website" FossilConnections today... Pay this one a visit if you have any interest in some very unique Fossil offerings:


Site Index:
Paleo Pages
These pages contain artifacts, relics, tools and arrowheads specific to the Paleo time era, which was the very first period in time that the Native American Indians inhabited the New World (The North American Continent) These are the oldest artifacts to be found in the United States, and are from the Clovis / Folsom era. (See the museum page for dates)
Archaic Pages
These pages contain artifacts and arrowheads specific to the Archaic period which lasted for 7,000 years. (see the museum page for dates) One major characteristic of the Archaic period was the introduction of "notches" to arrowheads and since this period covers such a broad time span, more different "types" of arrowheads can be attributed to this era than any other era.
Other Periods Pages
Artifacts and arrowheads from all other time eras (other than Paleo and Archaic), such as the Woodland period are collectively grouped on these pages for the entire North American Continent.
Big Blades Pages
These pages list larger knife blades, typically over 6" in length from all over the world.
Far West Pages
Formerly listed as "Great Basin" pages, these contain artifacts and arrowheads specific to the Far Western States of California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and the westernmost regions of Idaho and Utah.
Columbia River Pages
These pages offer a great variety of arrowheads and other stone tools which come from the Columbia River and it's many tributaries in Northern Oregon and Washington. The Columbia River is well know for it's exotic rock types and this beauty is reflected in artifacts from this area. Many of the arrowheads and other relics found in these parts were made from colorful petrified wood, and a rainbow of agate materials not to be found anywhere else in the world.
Gulf Coastal Pages
These pages contain arrowheads and other artifacts specific to the Florida / Georgia regions. Many of the relics listed on these pages are river-salvaged items of colorful red and orange Coastal Plains Chert.
Gem Points Pages
Arrowheads listed on these pages are either made from very colorful and beautiful materials, often having unusual "patterns" OR, they are of a high quality of craftsmanship, or both ! Basically the best of the best qualify to appear on these pages

For "decorative" and ornamental items made from Bone & Shells, please see our Bone & Shell pages.
Charmstones Pages
These pages contain California Charmstones which used to be on the Bone, Shell and Ornamental Stone pages. For Desert Charmstones, Crystals and Charmstones from other states, please see the Bone, Shell and Ornamental Stone pages. Charmstones have a similar sister in the eastern states, where they are called "Plummets", although the use for these was very different from the use for California Charmstones
