HEMATITE PAGE

Hematite Cone - #4-1

Size: 1 3/8" Diameter x 1 1/16" T.

Provenance: I do not have the find information.

Condition: Excellent. The nick in the first picture is old damage from heat, and even shows signs of being smoothed over by continued usage. This is an extremely high grade of hematite that almost has a steel grey appearance in places. Extremely heavy. Faceted. Is it just me, or does the damaged area look like the side profile of an Indian? I could be losing it, my shrink seems to think so.

Price: $125

 

Hematite Cone - #4-2

Size: 1 7/8" Diameter x 1 1/4" tall.

Provenance: White County, TN. Last sold in 2005.

Condition: Excellent. Shows use wear and some decent dings. But, form held together well, and this is an extremely valid example of the type.

Price: $100

 

Hematite Adze- #4-3

Size: 1 7/8" long x 1 1/2" wide.

Provenance: Found in the 1800's by Arthur Sullivan in Kentucky.

Condition: Excellent. It has some dings, but still a very nice cutting edge. I can't prove this, but I think all the scratches on the top are from making paint with the piece. Dual purpose tool.

Price: $50

 

Hematite Adze - #4-4

Size: 1 7/8" L x 1 1/16" W

Provenance: Found in the 1800's by Arthur Sullivan in Kentucky.

Condition: Excellent. Some dings. Faceted on many faces, and completely flat/straight sides.

Price: $40

 

Hematite Adze - #4-5

Size: 2 3/8" L x 1 7/16" W.

Provenance: Found in Central Ohio. Collected and labeled by Lar Hothem.

Condition: Super. No damage to speak of. Nice size for one of these. Coolest feature is that this piece was lost during the process of re-sharpening. They were almost finished, but the bit is still flattened out to create the cutting edge. With the way it was being worked, this one was trending in the direction of a gouge, which is stupidly rare for hematite.

Price: $150

 

Mini Hematite Adze - #4-6

Size: 1 3/16" long x 1 1/8" wide.

Provenance: Found in the 1800's by Arthur Sullivan in Kentucky.

Condition: Super. The chip in the bottom picture really doesn't effect the bit, and it is much smaller in hand. This one is very fine with superior lines, and skill in manfacture. Plus, who doesn't love mini's.

Price: $60

 

Hematite Adze - #4-7

Size: 1 7/8/8" L x 1 7/16" W.

Provenance: Found in the 1800's by Arthur Sullivan in Kentucky.

Condition: Good. This one has damage in several areas. Cool part is that damage appears to be fire pops to me. Good chance to get a real one at a reduced rate.

Price: $25

 

Killer Hematite Adze - #4-8

Size: 2 3/16" Long x 1 9/16" wide.

Provenance: Found North East of Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio.

Notes: Super. The tiniest flea bites to the bit. I would still class this relic as a 10. Incredibly sharp bit with perfect manufacture. High grade and heavy material. This is a top notch hematite artifact.

Price: $200
