One of the most intriguing finds is pictured below. Just days ago a neighbor walking along the beach reached down and picked up this beautiful 3 1/2" pre-Columbian spear point. He thinks it is a Clovis Point, maybe 10,000 to 12,000 years old, and made of jasper. But we're open to input from readers who may be more familiar with native American artifacts.
Please add a comment if you think you may know what sort of stone this point is made from, or if you have other information to share.
