This authentic stone tool was fashioned by Neanderthals over 40,000 years ago out of flint, and collected from a former Neanderthal occupation site in France, considered to be the "Capitol of Prehistory".  The site this specimen was excavated from is now closed and protected by the government.  The fact that this archeological site is off-limits to any collecting, makes this wonderful stone tool artifact exceedingly rare and desirable!    Because collecting these artifacts has been off-limits for decades, genuine fine grade Mousterian Neanderthal tools such as this specimen are most certain to continue to appreciate in value as time goes on.

This is a TOP GRADE Neanderthal flint tool classified as a ENGRAVER OR GRAVER.  It features a prominent pointed and sharp tip on a thick, robust flake.  Such a tool would be ideal to engrave wood, bone or ivory, a tool ideally suited in the creation of early art objects!  The flake is very thin and still is sharp and complete.  A wonderful patina and soil sheen from burial, dominates the flint surface.  Cave floor mineral deposits are attached on the both sides.  This fantastic flake tool is complete with prehistoric evidence of use.  It has intact mineral deposits and deep patina on the flint surfaces and hinge fractures to testify to its authenticity and lack of any modern alterations.  A superb example from this famous Neanderthal region!  NO RESTORATION, REPAIR OR MODERN DAMAGE.
