Hopewell Point (Middle Woodland Culture - 2,000 to 1,600 Years Ago). Found by a farmer in a cache of Hopewell artifacts in Indiana. It was made from a very clear Quartz Crystal that probably originated from the Arkansas area. The curved blade edge and exotic material are traits seen on other ritual objects connected to the Hopewell culture. Obsidian and a rare variety of deep blue green Flint Ridge chert was also found with this artifact.
Beneath the surface of the central region of Arkansas rest enormous beds of crystals the size of which are stunning. Some points are the size of skyscrapers, out of the reach of mining concerns, well below the deep waters. These 'Mother/Father Crystals' are very ancient and have been in a dormant mode for millennia.
