About the image on this page
Flint, Chert, Jasper, Agate and Obsidian were all favorites for making spear points and arrowheads. Those shown in the photo are replicas. This obsidian specimen was collected from Little Glass Butte, Oregon, and represents the fantastic trade network developed by early people, who transported obsidian stone tools from western USA volcanic deposits as far east as Ohio and beyond.
