Item: HS197      
Description: Polished "Cotton Rock" Adz - This Adz is highly polished and appears to have been double ended.  One end has been treated badly.  (see photos).  It is made of highly polished "Cotton Rock".  This material is called "Cotton Rock" because of its light weight compared to it's mass.  When prehistoric man pecked and ground this material into shape, it was a much heavier stone.  However, over the years that it laid buried in the ground, it's weight "leaches" out.  The result is that it becomes, in varying degrees, much lighter than it was originally.  Because of it's lack of heft, modern agricultural methods really reek havoc on artifacts made of this material.  Whole examples of this material are unusual.  Ex- Monty & Jewdy Pennington

Description: Outstanding Prehistoric Sandstone Mortar - This outstanding Prehistoric Mortar averages about 18 inches outside diameter and 10 inches inside diameter.  It weighs 80 pounds.  It was found in the fall of 2016 by a young man named Marty who was hiking in an area on the Western side of Elliott County, Kentucky where Beech Creek runs into Devil's Fork Creek.  The Mortar was found in the woods partially buried upside down next to a tree.  This young man carried or rolled the mortar about 1/2 mile to where he was staying.  It has some neat tool marks remaining along the rim and one of the features I found interesting was one nutting dimple near the edge when turned upside down.  Ex- Monty & Jewdy Pennington

Item: HS257                    Miniature Reed Drilled Bead  
Description: Limonite Bead - This Limonite Bead was found on the Fred Lawson Farm, at the confluence of the Cumberland River and Flat Creek, Knox County by Don McKeehan.  It has exfoliated some, but still retains it's integrity.  This little piece was an eye-opener and a myth buster for me.  FOR those who have said that any cylindrical hole in an artifact of diameter less than 3/8ths or 7/16ths or so is suspect, this piece was being reed drilled ( drilled with hollow cane packed with sand) and the hole diameter is 7/64 ths of an inch.  Allowing for tolerances from the sand, the cane used here was around 3/16 ths of an inch in diameter.  The "nipple" is about the size of a pencil lead!  This piece, Jewdy loved, so I am retiring it to her personal collection but I wanted to post it for everyone for educational purposes!  Jewdy Pennington Collection 

 

Size: 1 1/16 x 9/16 inches
