These were mounted on a board I had done, nearly 20 yrs ago.
(& much less experienced than I am today!)
I decided to redo the board so I removed the artifacts & cleaned the adhesive off, and I discovered something that I was to inexperienced to take notice of then.
Sorry for the poor photo's I will post better ones in a day or two.
I believe that several of these were made by the same individual!
And in fact were sort of signed or rather done with specific technique (s), so to be identified as their work...Maybe??
Like an artist signing a work of art? (In my opinion)
Has anyone ever come across or heard of such a thing? I'd like to have some feed back.
And if anyone is interest in why/how I reached this conclusion or the basis for my theory, I'd be happy to elaborate.

    Your theory sound reasonable unless these are more modern made & you bought them. Did you find them? Obsidian is not all that commonly found unless there is a lot of it in the area found. Either way, beautiful points etc.

    Makes really sharp points & tools.

    Due to the similarities in material and workmanship, I would also say that they are from the same source. The Obsidian is a great material and if it was from different sources, it wouldn't look so similar to each other.
