Projectile point

Description
If this tool had been finished it would have been a projectile point. These tools would be tied onto wooden sticks and used in hunting or as weapons. This example was discarded before it could reach this point, perhaps because of mistakes made by the craftsperson or maybe a flaw in the stone.
