Banded Flint Slice No5
Banded Flint Polished Slice
This is a gorgeous slice of Banded Flint from Poland that has been polished all over to achieve a nice sheen.
Flint can be found all over the world but what makes this particular slice unusual is the internal structure and layering. This type of flint, called banded flint, was first laid down in Limestone in the Jurassic Period in Poland around 160 million years ago in the area of Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski.
The irregular banding makes it a very attractive slice.
Flint was almost a sacred stone to ancient man, indeed, many were often buried along with their Flint axes, knives and spears to help them in the afterlife.
