Flint and Hammer Stone Discovery

Flint and Hammer Stone Discovery

We recently salvaged a pile of Flint in the woods of North Brookfield, MA. The stone is not likely native to the area and much is still a mystery about its origins. We hope to learn some traditional flint knapping techniques in the near future.

 

Pile of Flint

While we were stacking the flint from the ground into a wooden crate I came across this rounded stone. I put it in my back pocket with the thought that it might be an unsplit piece of flint. When getting back to the office we began handling the stone and realized its ergonomic shape was not likely a natural formation but rather shaped by mans hand.

Granite Millstone

Granite Millstone

A good friend of ours discovered this treasure while excavating a property in Spencer , MA. Its original use was as a Millstone likely used in a local mill. After retiring from its day job it rest on top of an artisan well only to be buried by decades of dirt and leaves.

It’s not often you find a millstone or a wellstone. It’s very rare when you find them both in the same stone.

curbset

In the life of a granite curb it’s handled dozens of times while being cut, shipped, installed, removed , salvaged, sorted and then packaged for the client. It was by pure chance that these two stones were reunited,  Just in the three months these stones were in our yard we moved them four times before palletizing them as shown above.

One in a million.
