Sunrise points are a new type defined from a collection from the PowersII site in eastern Wyoming. They have been found in association with an ancient red ochre mine, along with several other PaleoAmerican point types.  They are currently    undated but exhibit traits of Clovis and Goshen points.  The site is part of an on-going investigation.  This piece was made of JV jasper from Sunrise, Wyoming.  This material is highly variable and this piece has a small crystal pocket, accounting for the lack of symetry near the tip.  The piece is 68 mm long, 37 mm wide, 7 mm thick and weighs 22.5 grams.
