These agate arrowheads have been shaped by hand in a process known as ‘knapping’ into the form of ancient Native American artifacts. They are made from real agate, jasper, and chert natural stones of various colors, some of the same materials that were originally used in native times. However, since these are reproductions, they are not subject to antiquities laws and so are entirely legal to own, buy, and ship in all US states. Since these arrowheads are done with agate instead of obsidian, they are also more stable and durable and do not break as easily and they are also not nearly as sharp as arrowheads made of obsidian, which was the other type of stone (really a natural type of glass) that was often traditionally used. Agate arrowheads are a little bit pointy at the tip but will not cut when handled or worn. The sharper points of the tips can also be dinged off with a sturdy pliers for added safety. These arrowheads give an authentic rustic look to any party, scavenger hunt, scout event, educational award, etc. Sometimes adults like to scatter these on the ground before a kids’ event and let the kids think that they found a real artifact. Photos are stock photos, you will not receive these exact arrowheads but ones very similar.
