Elko points come in both notched and stemmed forms.  They date to the Late Archaic between 3,500 and 1,400 years ago.  Their range is from Western Wyoming to the coast of California, but center on the Great Basin.  They tend to be made from obsidian and basalt but also used other locally available stones.  This specimen is made from Cedar Mountain silicified oils shale, SW Wyoming.  It is 67 mm long, 34 mm wide, 6 mm thick and weighs 14.5 grams.
