It was obviously carved with stone tools. It is nicely polished with great patination. It dates to the Mississipian Period around 1000AD.

Perino stated it was one of the finest Clovis points he had ever seen...

Like many of you, I love the colorful gem points the most. You might have noticed that I specialize in this type of point and most of my points are in the gem category. I do not know what material this point is made from. It is that unusual. I can only classify it as a chalcedony. I do not know what type this point is. It was found in Nebraska. It is expertly chipped. In fact, you cannot tell which side is side A. Both sides are equally masterfully chipped. A G-10 all the way. It is 1 5/8" long....

This transitional paleo Allen was found in Ash Hollow, Nebraska. I purchased it many years ago from Rick Stevens, Daltonman. The asking price is what I paid. It is made from a beautiful waxy translucent moss agate. Of special note is the incredible ribbon flaking. This quality of flaking rarely makes it to the open market. Basal area is ground. It is 1 3/4" long. An overall beautiful point.
