Here’s a very nice Yadkin-Eared quartz arrowhead I found about ten years ago. Quartz is a rock type typical of Sampson County but finding good examples is a struggle because of the softness of the material. One interesting thing about quartz is that it is a crystal formation which will never have patina that forms on other stone types because of oxidation. One must rely on the shape of a quartz arrowhead in order to identify its culture time period. It will always be shinny and pretty. That is why the ladies always pick them when I give them an opportunity to select an arrowhead from my collection. They just sparkle whenever the light hits them.
(2 Cor 4:6 KJV) For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
(Mat 5:16 KJV) Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
I am excited to finally be able to share my Indian aritifact collection. This is the first 41 and most of them are spearheads that would have been used for defense from enemy tribes and for hunting big game such as buffalo, deer and bear. When I first became a pastor in 1998 the Lord and I sorta had a deal. I would walk and pray and He would help me find these wonderful hidden treasures made by the ‘original’ native americans. There are many amazing stories over the past 17 years of how a very specific leading in my spirit would be confirmed by the immediate finding of a wonderful, almost perfect arrowhead. I never fail to be thrilled at their discovery. I hope you will enjoy them too and may the Lord bless you and keep you!!!
