A lovely group of four Neanderthal convergent scrapers. Jasper, all four are in excellent condition. Height between 1 1/4" and 1 5/8". Legal excavation finds, Nordlinger Ries, Germany. Varying semi-glossy to glossy ground patinas. A gem-like group of smaller lithics that exhibit real mastery of the tool-makers art. Each has a variety of edges, finely worked, so that despite their diminutive size these multi-tools could serve effectively in any number of ways. The retouches on the lithic to the left are particularly beautifully done. All four date to 80,000-50,000 BCE.
