A STRANGE STONE
Its was raining today and I took a few minutes to video a stone I found recently on a spur above the high water line of the Murrumbidgee river behind Bonython. I have found Aboriginal stone tools in that general area before (hence an occasional walking spot for me) and think this stone might be one too although it is unusual.
ACT zig-zag border who confirmed, to me at least, that I knew what I was looking at. I think once you have seen a knapped stone or chip they stand out somewhat.
I have posts on ACT Aboriginal stone tools: - Symonston Aboriginal quarry (where I think this stone possibly came from) and Tidbinbilla stone artefacts photos of the displays at Tidbinbilla (with a great picture of a knapped stone). The photo above is of stone from the Symonston Quarry (left there).
A stone spear tip? a cutting tool? or just a natural formation? this video is just my pondering about what may or may not be an Aboriginal artefact...
