Lavender Flint Ridge Flint Pendant
Flint Ridge flint is a spectacular stone from Ohio, USA. This unusual lavender flint is polished to bring out the subtle hews of the gem. It is securely wrapped with 10 gauge copper wire to create this 2 inch by 1 inch pendant. It comes with leather cord so it can be worn as is as a necklace.
This "flint" is actually a highly workable churt that has historically been knapped or chipped into arrow heads, blades and scrapers by the ancient inhabitants of the region. This small vein of flint was so prized, that the land around the vein was considered sacred ground and acted as a gathering place for the region. Ancient tools from this flint have been found all over the continental US and into southern Canada. At this time, most of the flint from this vein is from the Miller mine or the Nether's mine.
