Source of flint


#1

Greetings to all, I am looking for a source of flint arrowhead 5cm (L)
x 4cm (w) x 1cm (d). Failing that, does anyone sell flint rough? The
arrowheads are to be used in experiments for a thesis so they do need
to be made from flint. I would prefer Australian sources but will
consider OS sources. Thank you

Eileen, in your area you might find this at a gun show. Another
source, is some archeologists, or their assistants also do
flint-knapping as a hobby. You might contact your local archeology
association.

A few years ago I bought some from Dan Beckler, FM 1721, Puclee H
Rd., Wichita Falls, Texas 76306 I do not have his area code, but it
might be 817. His phone number is 851-0206. He makes them and
sells
them.

Your local gem and mineral club might also know someone that does
this that might be able to help you.

Good luck!

I would also suggest that you check out any local rock shops in the
vicinity.
