Native American Indian Slate Pendant/Gorget Pieces
This is a group of 6 slate pendant or gorget pieces. They can be very useful to study the conical hole manufacture and the pecking and polishing process. These were truly Native American works of art for ornamental purposes.
Nutting Stone / Fire Starter
This is one of the nicest examples I have seen. It appears that it was a multi purpose tool. It was pecked and polished into shape with much care. I believe it was used as a fire starter to hold the bow drill stick. It was probable used as a nutting stone and shows signs of use as a hammer stone. There is also the possibility it was used as a game stone due to its careful shaping. It’s a nice rock. (Now I feel that I should at least wash it).
Unusual Slate Artifact
This is an unusual item, possibly a reel gorget preform, was found in a very productive field. It has been pecked and polished into shape. If it is a finished piece or was still under construction I am not sure. I am also not sure of its’ use or if it was purely ornamental. If anyone has any thoughts I would be happy to hear them.
