A Extremely Rare find with superb colouration to this stone-flint artefact, obviously the Neolithic man was as captivated as much as we are today by the fine grade of this stone. With a vibrant mixture of grey's and pale green tones present throughout, particularly the cutting edges show an exquisitely fineness of colour and form. Finely honed and polished, to form this competently designed and made Axe-Adze, exhibiting a good desert , glossy sheen, or desert varnish [natural finish]

Presumably, this Axe was mounted onto a wooden handle and possibly attached on with leather or reed type strapping using resin glues for extra strength.

Time has been extremely kind to this artefact, its condition is very fine with one small chip/ flake to the cutting point [5mm x 3mm], this is more prominent on one face than the alternate face, which often can be expected with such a robust tool.

We don't often see available Neolithic artefacts of this calibre.

The Neolithic age is considered to begin approx 10,200 to 8800 BCE years ago in Eurasia.
