Can anyone turn me on to a source of large, colorful novaculite?  Doesn't need to be heated as I can do that myself.  A trip south to the quarry is not in cards for me given the distance.  Any of you know anyone who sells this stuff in large pieces?  Thanks, Mike

call the quarry and ask if he'll send you some, or if he'll tell one of the numerous knappers who go there to collect material to contact you and get you some and send it.  a number of people sell novaculite at the watercreek knapin in the spring, but like with all materials, big, showy, colorful stuff doesn't get offered for public sale - it gets used by whoever gets it first or one of their buddies.

info might be out of date, but then again, it might not ==> link

6-8 large pieces would be great.  I'm looking for 11+ inches of length.  Thanks, Mike
