Lovely Neanderthal point on a flake from Fontmaure, France. Jasper, height 2 1/2". Legal surface find with fine, soft ground patina. The entire edge on the right side of the left photo has been retouched, forming a blade-like edge with a slight burin and two notches from about the mid-point down to the proximal end. This is a complex and very effectively thought out edge. Retouches to the left of the point as well, down to about the bottom of the purple streak in the jasper...

Wonderful, conceptually complex Neanderthal multi-tool. Flint, height 3 1/8". Excellent condition, slight ground patina, legal surface find from the Grand-Pressigny region, France. Very interesting and eccentric multi-tool. The top is a shaft straightener/concave scraper, and the slight extension with traces of cortex is a nose end scraper. Descending the length of the lithic from there is a denticulate saw edge...

A group of three Neanderthal scrapers and one naturally backed blade from Marbach, Germany. Chert, heights all at 2 3/8". Ground patina, all legal excavation finds. Minor chips to all four. The naturally backed blade is third from the left. This group of smaller lithics exhibits a wide variety of scraper edges, small notches and borer tips, making them highly effective tools despite their smaller size. Dating to 80,000-50,000 BCE.

Three smaller blades on flakes. All flint, heights between 2 5/8" and 3". The top of the center blade is broken, otherwise they are in excellent condition. These were all part of an auction purchase, as such I have no collection data to go with them. They were from a German collection. The chalky, whitish patina is most commonly seen on lithics that spent time either under the sea, covered by the advancing ocean over a given time, or on the shore near the ocean...

A group of three very solid Neanderthal tools on flakes from Marbach, Germany. Lengths between 2 7/8" and 3". All three jasper, large areas of cortex, excellent condition, legal excavation finds. Ground patina. The two exterior lithics are both very solid, chunky scrapers, rapidly yet expertly formed from what would have been the end pieces of the original pebble. The tool on the left is for a left hander. The central tool is a naturally backed blade, well flaked and still quite sharp...

A group of three Neanderthal tools from Marbach, Germany. Chert, lengths between 2 9/16" and 2 3/4". All legal excavation finds. Ground patina, all with minor chips and dings. Three simple and very summarily made yet highly effective tools. The center and right lithics are both backed blades, the center tool having a still very sharp burin as well. The tool to the left is more of a backed, denticulate saw. Very sculptural, art brut aesthetic to this group...

3 small notched scrapers on flakes from Marbach, Germany. All three are jasper, in excellent condition, heights between 1 15/16" and 2 1/16". All legal excavation finds. Nice, soft semi-glossy ground patinas. While the notches are evident in these tools (on the two on the left in the photo they could be classified as either a large notch ("shaft straightener") or a concave scraper), they are actually highly functional multi-tools with a number of worked edges on each of the three...

Recycled Neanderthal axe from the Grand-Pressigny region, France. Flint, height 3 1/4". Legal surface find with fine, glossy ground patina. Very finely wrought axe. At some point the distal end was broken off, and the axe was recycled- the end was retouched to form a concave scraper or push plane. The entire edge of the axe has been worked, and there is a deep notch just below the distal end, exhibiting some use damage. Dates to 80,000-50,000 BCE.
An absolutely gorgeous and *superior* unheated, untreated ruby from the famed gem mines of Mogok in Birma weighing an impressive 1.48ct. Gorgeous shade of pinkish red, very typical of Birma ruby. The colour will appear a tad more pink in sunlight - such as the bright Bangkok sunlight in which these pics were taken - and more red under incandescent lighting or cloudier conditions...

Larger Neanderthal notched backed blade. Jasper, height 5 1/4" From Fontmaure, France. Excellent condition, dryish patina. Legal surface find. Beautiful backed blade, created with a few simple flaking strikes, and then refined on one edge. Well designed ergonomically, with a notch at the center of the blade itself. The notch shows signs of use related wear. Lovely form and example of Fontmaure jasper. Dating to approximately 50,000 BCE.

2 larger Neanderthal cleavers of different typologies. Both Jasper, heights 3 5/8" and 5". Excellent condition, both missing a few very minor chips. Old auction purchases, I have no additional source data for them. The larger lithic to the left is a cleaver on a large irregular levallois flake. This was detached with what must have been a powerful single blow, and then the cleaver edge, which juts out somewhat like a convex scraper, was retouched from the opposite face. Evidence of what may...

Large Neanderthal multi-tool on a levallois flake. Flint, height 5 3/8". Tourraine (Indre et Loire), France. legal surface find, missing one chip on the proximal end. Large and hefty multi-tool, with an extended slightly convex notched scraper on one side and a denticulate saw-like blade on the other. The distal end has an abrupt scraper, though thick enough to have perhaps also served as a chopping edge or cleaver. Larger notch near the proximal end, and what looks like the slight remains...

Neanderthal Flake core. Flint, Height 3 1/4". Grand-Pressigny region, France. Legal surface find. Minor chips missing, otherwise intact with a lovely, glossy ground patina. Large sculptural example of a flake core on the famous Grand Pressigny caramel colored flint. 80,000-50,000 BCE.

Small Neanderthal biface with area of cortex. Flint, height 3 5/8". Vallee de la Creuse, France, legal surface find. One old chip missing, visible on the inside edges in the photos, about 1/4 down from the distal end. Lovely, glossy ground patina. Though similar in shape to a Limande, this lithic is a bit more roughly flaked and is thick for its size, making it a substantial tool for heavier work. Excellent ergonomics indicate this as the piece is designed for a very strong grip in all dire...

Interesting pair of Neanderthal multi-tools from Fontmaure, France. Jasper, heights both at 3 3/4". Legal surface finds, the lithic on the right has a couple of very minor chips missing. Both of these tools are of unusual structure and typology. The lithic on the left is primarily a burin on a large flake. The flake side is comprised of a large area of cortex or softer jasper. There is an interesting concave scraper edge to this tool as well. The tool on the right is a nosed end scraper w...

This is a very old Neanderthal partial biface proto-axe on a large levallois flake. Flint, height 3 1/4". legal surface find from the Vallee de la Creuse, France. The distal end is broken off. The chip appears to be quite old, and possibly use-related damage. Lovely patina and variegated surface to this piece. Dates to 100,000-80,000 BCE.

Neanderthal biface axe. Flint, height 3 1/4". Legal surface find, Vallee de la Creuse, France. One small, use-related chip missing on the distal end. This is one of those difficult to classify lithics. The knapping is unusual, and though one side slightly resembles a core, this may in fact be a recycled tool made from an originally larger tool. In shape it most closely fits the category of "Limande," however it is more roughly knapped that one usually sees with Limandes. A good mystery and...

Neanderthal triangular biface on a reworked flake core with remains of cortex. Flint, height 3 1/4". Legal surface find, Vallee de la Creuse, France. This lithic, while originally a flake core, exhibits signs of extensive further retouching that resulted in a scraper edge and what was a crushing point at the distal end. Several minor chips missing, most probably use related damage. Nice form and surface, and ergonomically well designed, which is why it may have been reworked from a core to a...

A small Neanderthal biface "Limande." Flint, height 3 3/8". Legal surface find from the Grand Pressigny region, France. Missing one chip near the distal end. This was probably use related damage broken off early in the life of the tool as it has patinated similar to the rest of the lithic. This piece exhibits retouching all around the edges with the exception of a small area at the proximal end. As such the edges are nearly entirely useable, and the excellent ergonomic design allows for se...

Acheulean Biface axe, of a form called "Limande." Sandstone, height 4 1/4" Fontmaure, legal surface find. One chip missing on distal end. Lovely ground patina. The soft hammer percussion and mastery of form lend themselves to the identification of this lithic as in all probability being Neanderthal, though the Limande as a form seems to predate the Middle Paleolithic period in Europe. While Fontmaure stone tools are most renowned for the gem quality jasper in the region, in actuality the ma...

A diverse group of 5 Neanderthal tools, 4 in chert and one in flint. Heights between 1 3/4" and 2 5/8". The 4 lithics in chert (similar ochre color) are all legal excavation finds from Marbach, Germany. The flint lithic (second from left) was purchased as part of a separate group with no data identifying source or origin. To judge from the stone I would hazard a guess that it is from Lower Normandy in France. All are in excellent condition. All are multi-tools exhibiting fine retouches and ...

Large Neolithic Biface double blade or point. Flint, height 3 7/8". Excellent condition, auction purchase, I have no source data on this lithic. Judging from the stone I think this piece is from Belgium. While the classic hand axe essentially disappeared with the Middle Paleolithic, bifacial and partial bifacial knapping continued into the Neolithic period, resulting most often in scrapers, blades or point similar to this one. While some functioned as independent stone tools, others were pr...

Large convergent scraper from the Suwannee River/Withlacoochee River basin of northern Florida. Chert, height 3 9/16". Auction purchase from an old Texas collection. Please note approximately 2/3 of the way down the inside edges of each photo a missing chip. This is probably old use damage and well-patinated. Otherwise excellent condition. The deep coloring is due to the lithic being exposed to wet-land soil rich in organic materials. Dates to approximately 12,000-8,000 BCE.

A group of 5 Aterian flint tools of unusual shapes from Bir el Ater, Algeria. All in excellent condition, legal surface finds. Heights between 2 1/8" and 2 5/8". These may have been hafted scrapers. The Aterian industry in Saharan Africa ranged from approximately 145,000 BCE to 30,000 BCE, and was loosely centered through Saharan Africa into the Mid-east (Oman). These lithic probably date to about 45,000 BCE.

Small upper Paleolithic Aurignacian convergent scraper from Germany. Flint, height 1 7/8". Excellent condition, old auction purchase. Finely wrought scraper on a flake, with a beautiful bulb of percussion. The Aurignacian were the first verified wave of Homo Sapiens to move up into Europe from Africa during the upper Paleolithic. it is believed that they developed from the Ahmarian, who migrated into the Levant around 46,000 BCE. This lithic dates to 43,000-22,000 BCE.
