Source of flint

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!

The area code for Wichita falls is 940

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