Neanderthal burin. Jasper, height 3 1/4". Fontmaure, France, legal surface find. Beautiful burin or pic on a nice, green jasper. Fine ground patina. Burins were an extremely important tool during the Paleolithic as they were used to score bones to extract marrow, a major source of iron at the time. Dates to approximately 50,000 BCE.
