Georgetown Flint comes from the Cretaceous Austin limestone/Chalk on the eastern edge of the Edwards plateau in the vicinity of Georgetown, Texas. The Georgetown material occurs in a narrow range of grayish colors, of which the steel-blue/grey glassy translucent variant known as "Georgetown Blue" is the highest quality for knapping. In fact it's probably one of the best quality materials anywhere in North America and is highly sought after. We have obtained a limited amount of this high quality material, and will be offering it while supplies last.
We strive to provide the cleanest, blemish free knapping material within our means. On some material however, blemishes do get past us because not all defects are evident at first or even second inspection. In efforts to avoid defects as much as possible, we remove a few flakes via percussion to ensure that you do not pay for large amounts of waste.
Dense Texas material requires dense billets. Attempting to knap dense stone with too small/fragile of a billet will damage the billet and not produce sizable thinning flakes early on in the process as needed. Texas material tends to be a bit more dense than heat treated chert. Depending on the size material being worked, it may be advisable to use solid copper or brass instead of a copper bopper.
