What is that grey fossiliferous stone in the first few pics and where is it from? Super cool and looks tough to work.

thanks
I'm not sure what kind of stone that is. The cortex had sea shells exposed on the surface.
Here's a preform I worked on the last two days on lunch break at work and an insitu pic of some knapping material on side of the road on the way home.
Most have been picked up already but I've seen hundreds of toilets on side of the road in the debri piles lately.

The base needed thinning on one side so when I got home I took a few flakes with the indirect lightning rod then pressure flaked the edges some.
Now I need to study the notches on the Andice Curtis posted and will try to put some like that on here,

thanks cwilly
you can hijack my thread anytime.
I didn't know lowes had lightning rods, but as long as it's solid copper it will work.
mine is a 3/8" copper rod.

Nice points Terry! I know that stuff aint tuff to you:) and nice johnstone score! Look out for TV glass too! Great notch shots on that Andice.   Keep em coming!

Them lightening or ground rods nowadays are steel with some Zinc maybe and copper plated. Kinda like they make pennies I suppose. Not good if your looking for solid copper.
