Tool

I found this exquisite stone point while walking in a California desert area about 25 years ago. It's a tiny thing, about the size of a quarter. I was absolutely thrilled to find it.

What an extraordinary find, and such a good choice for this prompt! You must be very happy to have found it. :o)
I looked everywhere around that stone for any others, but it was all by itself. I'm so happy I happened to look down and see it.
Oh, that is wonderful.
I love it.
How terrific! I always keep my eye out for them, but I've not found any arrowheads since I was a kid.
Do you still have them?
Oh *wow*, how absolutely amazing. That reminds me of an account I read the other day, in a book about author Alan Garner, whose house in Cheshire stands on land which has been inhabited for ten thousand years and is now run by an educational trust. The author of the chapter describes, in Blackden's grounds, knapping flint "under the guidance of a professor of archaeology, listening as the conversation gave way to silence, as the rhythm of our tapping fell into unison and the realisation spread among the group that this sound was being heard in this spot for the first time in three thousand years."

That blew my mind. (Google Books has the extract here...)
