Item:202463606030Here is one of the finest artifacts I have offered to date! This Acheulean hand axe has some of the finest natural stone features imaginable! Beautiful workmanship and functionality displayed in this museum quality specimen! Material is a rich basalt with an appealing patina. Recovered near the Mauritania / Morocco boarder. This is a Lower Paleolithic piece and pre-dates modern man by a million years or so! This is the most commonly used type of early man tool. This particular one has a bit of wonderful micro-wear! This African artifact has a superb African Continent shape too!! This is a well-made hand axe to say the least! It is crafted to fit nicely in the palm of the hand several ways. It displays awesome micro & macro-wear on the working edges,...all of them! The ergonomics are fantastic!! This specimen is still 100% serviceable! Specimen Weight: 1.5 Pounds Specimen Size: 155 X 126 X 42 mm A specimen with wear and markings like this is a TRUE MUSEUM PIECE! A collection centerpiece! I will include an information card.
