    Type of Lithic?

    I find many colors in my area like black, blue, red and white and green and black mixed. Not all material is a known type to me. I found this one yesterday and think I have found a few others made from it this year. Id like to know the type and if it is a local material found in N GA? If not a local type where is it from? With all of the quartz inclusions in it Im thinking I am real lucky it was a whole find.

    Might as well add this one I call it the Camo Color green black and some I find has a brown mixed it like my avatar pic. There is a certain section of the creek where I find this nice material which is way up on the far end where not many people adventure to. I have permission but sometimes the owners dont know I am out there and like to run their big dogs in the woods. I dont go all the way to that section to often due to the distance. Any help on these materials wound be great. Again if it isnt from my area where is it from? Im close to Ala and Tenn like in the upper west corner of GA. Thanks you

    Altoona Blue

    The local collectors call this material Altoona Blue. Lake Altoona is about 30 miles away from the location I find this sky blue material. I have been told it was a prized flint for my area a very high grade type. I find it in the fields and creeks. When in the creek for a long time it will turn black with stain and will look black and tan. I will see if I have and example of the creek stain to. All of my creeks that I hunt with permission empty into the Etowah river which was a Native American highway for many thousands of years. Thanks any info on these materials would be great.

    Northwest Georgia has several formstions that have chert in them and not seem to be lumped together as Ridge and Valley chert. The formstions are Knox group which has a couple formations with chert, fort payne and Tuscumbia formations, St. Louis and warsaw formation, St. Genevieve formation, bangor formation, Armuchee chert, and possibly others.

    Is there a good book on different types of flint material on the market that doesnt cost a fortune?
