Item: Type: Northern Side Notched Provenance: Price
DFGP4 A HIGHLY unusual, multi-colored pink, blue, white, beige and burgundy Silicified wood

Found during the early 1900's

500.00
Northern Side Notched Arrowhead which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a more in Minidoka Co., ID 450.00
than just experienced knapper. At first I thought that it had slight lateral nicks to the
corners of the base as well as to the tip of one barb above the notch (right side in photo
4) but under microscopic examination, these appear to simply be part of the knapper's
technique. Needless to say, I have to label this one as VERY RARE, because
somewhere around 98% of ALL Northern Side Notched points were made from
obsidian, and personally I've never seen this type in such a colorful and attractive material
Era: Early to Late Archaic Period - 3,000 to 9,000 years old Stermer COA

Item: Type: Humboldt Triangular Provenance: Price
TDIFW69 A very thin fully translucent (and my "test" in order to assign ANY artifact "FULL translucence" is if Offered for sale by the original finder who 750.00
you can set the artifact on a newspaper and actually read the newspaper under the artifact... we're recovered this beauty from the Warner 495.00
strict with our terminology, in order to not mis-lead our valued customers, and certain "key" phrases Valley area in Lake County, Oregon
are very sparingly used!) opalescent obsidian Humboldt Triangular dart point showing just the slightest
hint of subdued diagonal banding. It is THOROUGLY and VERY INTRICATELY flaked on both
faces by a (near?) master knapper. Actually, the flaking patterns are to die for. Under microscopic
examination, this one is PERFECT!!! and it has good and full basal grinding not only to the edges of
the hafted base but to the bottom edge as well. (This is a strong testimony which places this beauty
into the Paleo/Archaic transitional period; not surprisingly so, because in my own personal opinion,
almost all Paleo and early Archaic period artifacts displayed superior craftsmanship as well as superior
host stone material.) This one qualifies for listing on our Gem Points page as well. I'm not going to
insult the HIGH quality of this beauty by simply calling it a "choice piece"... it's better than that.

Item: Type: Shaniko Stemmed Provenance: Price
TDIGP612 A most fascinating, fairly thick Shaniko Stemmed Dart point made from an absolutely Recovered from the 275.00
gorgeous multi-colored, diagonally banded brown, red, orange, ice and white agate host Columbia River in 225.00
material. It was made on a larger flake, and retains a slightly bowed form from the original Morrow County, Oregon  
flake's shape. It's fairly well flaked on both faces with very minute secondary pressure
flaking patterns to all 4 edges. Just a highly unusual and desirable gem point. Published in the
"Oregon Artifacts" article in I.A.M. (Indian Artifacts Magazine) Vol. 20-3 July 2001 pg. 38. Ex: Templeton

Item: Type: Plains Side Notched Provenance: Price
ASOT21 A totally paper-thin, delicate and highly attractive deep burgundy chert Plains Found on private land in 250.00
Side Notched Arrowhead which is simply a TOP notch piece of artwork. It's Cherry County, Nebraska
thoroughly flaked on both faces by one of the best master knappers we've ever near the Snake River
seen. It has 2 small indentations along one edge (left side in photo 4) caused by
the initial manufacturing of this beauty. Truly a gem of a point which appears to
be "all there" and as fresh as the day it was made.

agate Rose Springs Stemmed Arrowhead which is well flaked on both Columbia River in WA

there" as it was anciently made and used. Just a beauty of a point.

Item: Type: Rose Springs Side Notched Provenance: Price
GP151 A gorgeous translucent orange and clear carnelian agate Rose Springs Recovered from the 45.00
Side Notched arrowhead which is flaked on both faces by a novice  Columbia River in WA
knapper with side A well flaked, although in a cursory fashion and side during the 1890's
B mostly pressure flaked only around the periphery. The asymmetrical
form, especially to the barbs as well as to the side edges of the base
appear to be attributed to the inexperience of the knapper, rather than
to damage. Quite an attractive piece made from a rare material

Item: Type: Talco Provenance: Price
RPGP4 A very delicate, paper-thin mottled red and purple chert Recovered from 250.00
Talco Arrowhead form. Obviously created by a master Gregg Co., TX
knapper, this is a one-of-a-kind, rare offering!
Period/Age: Mississippian to Historic - 500-800 B.P. Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
CHGP1 A (mostly) paper-thin mottled brown, red and gray petrified wood Unclassified Corner- Found in 250.00
notched Arrowhead created by a master knapper. Petrified wood is one of the most difficult Polk Co., TX
materials to knap, not only because of the hardness of the host material, but also because of (Offered by the
the unpredictability of the layered sections with petrified wood. The creator of this beauty original finder)
managed to thoroughly flake both faces, with especially intricate and detailed patterns
around the edges, leaving shallow serrated edgework. The base was anciently snapped,
most likely as part of the normal manufacturing process and it's single flaw is a "dip" in the
center of the face on side B, caused by a rougher layer in the host stone, and leaving a
noticeable horizontal "step" at the centerline of this piece. (indicated by the red arrow in the 
4th photo above.) Still one of the best petrified wood pieces we've ever seen! It dates to the
late Archaic-Woodland eras between 2,000 and 3,500 years old, by artifact association
from the same site. (It resembles the Catahoula type, but is from a much earlier time period)

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAGP4 An outstanding, paper-thin reddish-mahogany obsidian Eastgate  Recovered from 125.00
Arrowhead thoroughly flaked on both faces with the exception of Lake Co., OR
a small 15% flat section remaining on side B around the hafting 
area, left from the original host flake's surface. (photo 5) It shows
very minute edge serrations and the bottom edge of the base is
"irregular", but it's "all there" as it was made.

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DAGP764 An extremely colorful, perfect orange, burgundy Recovered on the 200.00
and red agate Rabbit Island Arrowhead, very well Columbia River, OR
flaked on both faces but having a vertical flat spot 
in the center of side B from the outer layers of the
host stone's surface. Just a breath-taking piece!

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCGP26 A fairly sturdy, semi-translucent diagonally banded duo-flow obsidian deadly Pershing Co., NV 120.00
Humboldt Triangular dart point having nicely serrated edges. It's thoroughly
flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper and the flaking patterns are
only slightly subdued from nice desert polish. This one snuck into the Gem 
Point category before our final 3-point inspection revealed that it has a single
professionally restored ear tip, so it's priced accordingly.

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
MHGP1284 A fairly large (for type) opaque black obsidian Elko Corner Crump Lake, OR 110.00
notched dart point. It's well flaked on both faces by an  85.00

Rose Springs Stemmed dart point fairly well flaked on Churchill Co., NV
both faces to a median ridge by a novice knapper. It
has a "hooked" appearance to it's tip, which I thought
was a nick, but upon microscopic examination, it
appears that this is just the way it was made

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DAGP677 A semi-tranlucent multi-colored (red, orange Recovered in 60.00
and white) agate Rose Springs Corner- The Dalles, OR
